Throwback Thursday Color Challenge Challenge

Hello! Coming in at the last minute (again!) with another challenge! This is for the Throwback Thursday Challenge over at My Creative Time. My Gypsy is broken, and it took me forever to make a card with my Cricut without my Gypsy! So...that is why the layers on this are pretty simple!!! Anyway, here is what I made:
And here is the color challenge. Cute, isn't it? 

I used what I hope counts as an older cartridge by now - Love you a Latte - to cut out the chairs, and the kraft fancy frame. 
Inked the edges of everything with Tim Holtz distress ink, and ran the kraft paper through my Cuttlebug.  
The blue and green paper are from October Afternoon, and the sentiment frame was cut using one of Emma's early dies. The sentiment is also from Emma's stamps - from her last release, Celebrate Good Times.
I used foam adhesive to attach the chair, and the sentiment piece. 
And finished off by wrapped some jute twine from Ribbon Carousel around several times, and tying a nice loopy bow! 
It ends tonight, so there is still a little time for this challenge - and the winner takes home her entire new release coming later this week! And the sneaks are ADORABLE!!! So run over and join in soon if you have some time today!


  1. I think this looks Great. But I totally know what you mean about the gypsy. If I have to cut something without my cricut, I stare at the expression, as if it will just cut on its takes me forever to get in the mode of selecting the right buttons, lol...oh I love the gypsy.

    Again, the card is super cute.

  2. So cute...I know what you mean...almost can't live without my Gypsy! Lee-Ann :)
