Count your blessings - CTD #112

Woohoo! It's Color Throwdown time! This week I'm the host and I've picked some nice fall colors. 'Cause you know I love fall, right? We also have a sponsor this week: Pixie Petals, an Etsy store with really, really cute embellishements and who is giving a nice prize. Get the deets at the Throwdown blog.

Aren't they some purty colors? ;-)

I decided to do a Thanksgiving card with these colors. Mostly because I had this patterned paper in my stash that had all of 'em in it, LOL! The image and sentiment are from PTI's First Fruits set, stamped on Very Vanilla and sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The seam binding and that gorgeous fabric flower are both from Pixie Petals. Simple and I'm liking it.

Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD112 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week!!!
