Color Throwdown #57

Well, this is my first attempt at the Color Throwdown Challenge. I have been looking at the cards there for a while but today I gathered my gumption and made a card to submit!

Here are the colors for the week....

and here is my card....

I used bits and pieces from my stash so I am not really sure of their origins! The owl is a Studio G stamp that I got at Micheal's and colored with some colored pencils. I cut out the circle with my nesties and stamped the stitched border on him with Colorbox ink and a Little Yellow Bicycle Baby Safari stamp. I stitched the "quilt" on the sewing machine...harder then I thought it would be ;}

Thanks for looking, and I hope you like my first attempt at the throwdown!
