I was so thrilled when the Color Throwdown crew posted this awesome color challenge using my favorite color combination of all time: Baja Breeze, Basic Black, and Sahara Sand! My home's interior paint colors, decorations, and even my wardrobe are primarily in these three wonderful colors! This will be my first time playing along with this great group of stampers, and I'm looking foward to participating in more of their upcoming challenges! Sadly, Baja Breeze retired from the Stampin' Up! Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog, but it is still one of my favorite colors and I do hope they bring it back some day! To make this card, I followed the amazing, step-by-step directions posted on the Splitcoaststampers website, this card took me less than a half hour to create!
