My Inspiration For Color Throwdown

I have a list of Challenge Blogs that I check first thing each morning. Usually I check them before I leave for work. Then, I can think about them through out the day and sometimes, by the time I get home from work I'm ready to start on something.  Color Throwdown is on my list for Wednesday. When I saw the colors this morning - Black, Cranberry and Grey Wool (CTMH colors) I wasn't too inspired.  
After lunch I decided I had better start a list for things I needed to get at 'Wally World'.  I reached up to grab a sheet from my new notepad a co-worker gave me at Christmas.  OH WOW!  I was suddenly inspired!  Below is my list.  BTW, I decided the list wasn't long enough to warrant a trip to the Walmart - so I put it off.  Besides, I now had better things to do!

And here is my card inspired by my notepad and the colors from Color Throwdown!

I used the stamp set - Eclectic Edges (C1450) and Silver Embossing for my border. The stamp across the grey cardstock is also from Eclectic Edges. I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge for my intricate flower and the branch. The flower turned out beautiful although it was like picking fleas off a dog to get all those little pieces out of there! I stayed patient and, surprising to me, I didn't tear it! The center of the flower has a Grey Opaque Adhesive Gem in the center.  The flower was cut at 2 3/4".   "I LOVE YOU" is from December's Stamp of the Month - Mad About You (no longer available)

This was a fun card to create.  I hope you enjoyed it!
