Color Throwdown Challenge #82

Here is my attempt at the Color Throwndown Challenge & 365 Cards. I really like the way it turned out. The Well Scripted Stamp set is in our current Occasions Mini Catalog. I purchased the Clear Mount version and am loving storage option. The DVD case like storage allows you to store more stamps in a small space. There are also cling labels that you are able to attach to the cling foam so you are able to see your image as you stamp. I personally prefer the clingy-ness without the label. (Of course that is just my option on them). Also SU's Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder is different from the other brand embossing folder. I really like both for different reasons. Stampin' Up! has the dots spaced a bit further apart, the dots are wider and more rounded ... Hope that helps someone :)
Thanks for looking :)
