Color Throwdown Week 14

Ah! Finally - I'm getting a chance to post my Throwdown card! We had great colors this week - I was a little afraid at first, but really, they are great together! I thought this color combo was definitely reaching the outer limits of my comfort zone, so I thought I'd make a card that isn't my normal too. I'm not too sure how much I like the card, but the colors - WOW - they really do work well together!!

My Card.

A Birdseye view.

Details: The bird is Inkadinkado - I think she's quite a cutey sitting in her next! She's got a good idea of what life is all about, and probably a pretty good view too! I decided she needed to be high up in a tree....what tree?? Ack - I didn't have a tree, so I had to make one! I used a Marvy large Scalloped punch for the treetop, and just some brown textured paper for the tree trunk - I just started cutting, no real plan - and this is what I got. I think it turned out okay. I used another Inkadinka do stamp for the treetop just to give it a bit of life. I felt like the card was a bit plain, so I settled for a "Thank You" rubon. I really felt like I needed to do more with the card, but I decided the whole point of stepping out of my comfort zone was to do something different... so I didn't do anything else, I didn't add a ribbon, a brad or a flower, which is something different for me!

Thanks for stopping by! Please visit the Color Throwdown to see some other great cards with these colors - LeAnne has an awesome card and you can find directions to make it on her blog ... I'm thinking Teepee and Thanksgiving - it could be fun!! We'd love for you to play along too - and post a link so we can come see what you did!
