Color Throwdown

So, I follow A LOT of blogs that inspire me via google reader. If you follow a lot of blogs and are tired of going into each individual blog every day to see if there are any new updates, then google reader is definitely for you! It will let you know when your blogs have update all on one page! Anyway, one of the blogs I follow is Jen Tapler. She participated in a Color Throwdown challenge . I liked the colors so I thought I would play along! The colors they chose were:

Stamp: Fruitful, Vintage Picnic Sentiments

Ink: Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate, Ripe Acocodo, Plum Pudding,

Paper: Papertrey Ink Spring Moss Bitty Dot Paper

Other: Cuttlebug Divine Swirl Embossing Folder, PTI Dark Chocolate Twill Ribbon
