LNS challenge using the color throwdown!

Mondays are so buys for me, between my sketch challenge and the weekly challenge on Latenight Stampers I have a lot to do, not to mention that it is the first day of the new week and there always seems to be a lot of regrouping from the weekend going on! This week's challenge on Latenight Stampers was a sketch challenge! I love those. I actually made three cards for it and they are all using the same colors. The color throwdown challenge.

The colors this week were just beautiful! Once I started I could not stop, lol. If you notice there is one in the last post too so I actually made four cards with these colors. You can see the other one HERE if you missed it.

And of course this also is 100% current Stampin Up! so it qualifies for my Your Hired Again Series. I lost count, lol.

The first card is using the hostess set A little Somethin'. What a fun set and it matches our punches! Got to love that.

Stamps: A little somethin'
Paper: Ruby Red, Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Urban Oasis DP
Ink: Ruby Red and Baja Breeze
Other: brads, ribbons, heart punch

Next is another Hostess set -- Rustic Rooster. I did not really like this set at first but I have had some real fun with it. You can see the other cards and home decor I made with it by clicking on the following links. Here and Here and Here.

Stamps: Rustic Rooster and Really Retro
Paper: Basic Grey, Ruby Red, Baja Breeze and Whisper White
Ink: Ruby Red, Baja Breeze
Other: small, large and scallop oval punches, pretties kit, ribbon.

And finally I decided to turn the sketch on it's side for this last one using the Upsy Daisy set.

Stamps: Uppsy Daisy
Paper: Urban Oasis DP, Baja Breeze DP, Ruby Red, Whisper White,
Ink: Going Grey, Ruby Red, Baja Breeze
Other: sponges, brads, ribbon, large and scallop oval punches.

And now so you can play along here is the sketch.
