CTD#168/MOJO215 - With Sympathy

Hello there! It's time for this week's Color Throwdown (CTD168)!  Keva has some striking colors for all of us to create with this week and we hope you'll find time to play along.

Don't you just love these colors?  It's such a great combination.  For my card I not only used the Color Throwdown colors for this week but I also used the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #215 for my layout.  I started out with a basic grey card base, then added an embossed panel of riding hood red.  I added a strip of basic grey card stock, a strip of MME designer paper and a Papertrey Ink sentiment from the Think Big Favorites #3 stamp set which I matted.  Once those steps were done I die cut grey felt leaves using the Taylored Expressions Leafy Branch die (fantastic die) and a flower using the PTI flower die.  I crushed the flower to add texture, added a button to the center and arranged the leaves and flower onto my card.

Great minds were together as we both combined this with the mojo sketch! Love your use of the red as the BG (I'm really wanting a redo of my card - lol). Great use of Keva's colors!

Love this card. Sadly I need a sympathy card and, since I have all the dies you used, can now create one just as beautiful!

I love this beautiful card! I have that flower die and the sentiment on my PTI wish list. They need to quit having such wonderful releases, as they keep going in and out of my cart! Thanks for sharing your pretty card!
