Color Throwdown

Got to break open my new SU ink pads...and matching paper! Used the color combo of Bermuda Bay, Real Red & Smoky Slate for the CTD304 Challenge over at Color Throwdown. Also used Sketch MFTWSC188 over at My Favorite Things. I originally was going to use dp from Authentique, but it didn't match the SU Colors EXACTLY, and I really wanted to use my new SU stuff, so I opted for making my own background paper with some old flower stamps I had. I don't have any of the SU Neutrals, so my slate is the background paper which is from Authentique. I'm sending this to a friend who is celebrating her 50th...I think she will appreciate the fact that I didn't emphasize that number in her card! TFL!

While I was at it, I did manage to make a second card. I am in love with those little butterflies!
