Etsy Inspired + Color Throwdown

Hi, again!  Second post today with a card for the new Etsy Inspired challenge, as well as Color Throwdown.  I haven't done a Color Throwdown challenge in a long time, but when I saw the colors I had just had to take it on.   I just loved the boldness of the red, yellow, black and cream combo... The inspiration piece I chose from the Etsy inspiration store EX Baggage Co. is  the perfect fit for the Color Throwdown colors.  Stamps used are from the Taylored Expression Discover Your Wings set.     Papers are from the October Afternoon Thrift Shop line.  The layout is based on a sketch from Taylored Expressions (TESC135).

I think this card must be the fourth one I have done this week that involves a color challenge!  Not entirely sure why, but I'm lovin' color challenges right now.   Whatever the reason I'm sure having a lot of fun and my mojo seems to be running in high gear! 

Thanks for taking a peek...  go get your color on!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Vintage Cream, Pure Poppy & True Black; Stamps:  Taylored Expressions; Ink:  PTI True Black & Pure Poppy, SU! So Saffron; PP:  October Afternoon; Ribbon:  PTI Vintage Cream double stitched; Sizzix tag; Ranger Old Page Distress Ink; little safety pin
