Color Throwdown Week 3

It was Broni's turn to pick the colors this week for the Color Throwdown, and boy were they challenging for me! I really do like the colors, I just don't use them that often, together or separate! I think maybe I've used Taken with Teal one other time - okay maybe two times, and definitely not in this combo. They really do look gorgeous together.....but this was definitely a challenge for me and that is why I LOVE the color challenges - to try new combos I'd never think of and make a card that I would have never come up with on my own!

I was totally stumped though! All I could see was something Mexican! I don't even know if these are traditional Mexican colors or why I was thinking that, but I just couldn't get the image of the Inkadinkado Chihuahua out of my mind! Of course, now that I've seen the other girls' cards I'm having no problem at all envisioning these colors in other cards! I had to slap myself in the forehead and say, "Oh ya....that is how you do it [use these colors]!"

The Card.
He is cute, isn't he? I love that he looks like he's just shaking with excitement....just like little dogs do!

The Throwdown Girls really did a great job this week! Check it out!
