Wisteria Tea Kettle--Color Throwdown #66

WHERE is the time going???!!! It's Wednesday again already so that means it's Color Throwdown day! Our very lovely and talented Miss LeAnne chose the colors today and they were a REAL challenge for me, LOL! Elegant Eggplant, Rich Razzleberry, and Bordering Blue. Wowza!
So, here's what I came up with. I'm using Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #45 for my layout--love it! My little tea kettle image is an October My Favorite Things release called In the Background. Patterned paper is from the Wisteria 6 x 6 pad by Basic Grey. I stamped the tea kettle on one of the designs and cut it out, popping it up on a Nestabilities Label Four mat with Dimensionals. The rest of the card is pretty straight-forward.

Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. If you don't, just use the closest you have. And don't forget--there's a chance to be chosen as Featured Stamper, which makes you eligible to become a Guest Designer. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use Mr. Linky to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily and so you'll be eligible to win (only directly linked entries will be considered for Featured Stamper--see the sidebar on the blog for all the details). And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown--failure to do this will also disqualify you from winning. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD66 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
