Color Throwdown Challenge

Well I tried to handle these colors. These are the colors for the Color Throwdown challenge for the week. I do like them together, even though I don't necessarily care for the colors in particular. Does that make any sense? Anyway, I decided to not reinvent the wheel. I took a card from the Stampin Up catalog (page 197) and recreated it in these colors. I don't think I like it too much....maybe there is something to reinventing the wheel...:D
So, I have/had a Sizzix Sidekick that I used to cut my sizzlets. Well, when I was running the leaves through they didn't make a clean cut, so I went to cut out another one. I thought I should put a piece of cardstock in there to help make the cut crisper (like a shim). Well....
I guess it was too much. It is completely stuck in there now. I mean it is stuck in there....NOT coming out!!! The most frustrating part of it all is that my leaf sizzlet is still in there....UGH!!
So, I had to just make do with the leaves that weren't cut clean. Guess I'm done making cards for today. I'm not in the mood to deal with this right now....ha ha ha
Have a wonderful day today everyone.
Thanks for visiting and hanging in there with all my drama... :D


  1. Oh, what a bummer!!! That stinks....there must be some way to get that die out! The card is very pretty--I admit, I do not like to do letters that way, I have NO patience! But these colors make quite a bold statement like this! Good luck on your sissix!

  2. Wow! Sorry about your Sizzix! Maybe time for the newer version. Nice card though, Thanks for playing!

  3. Sorry about the Sizzix!!! But I love your card!
