The Color Throwdown #425

Hello fellow cardmakers. Today I am playing along with The Color Throwdown #425. Here is a look at this weeks color palette.  The colors this week are black, mustard, and blue.

My card today was a bit of a disaster, lol. In the end, I like the way that it turned out, but not as I originally thought. I used Your Next Stamp's, "Waddles Food Truck Fun". Food Trucks are big where I live in the warmer months. We actually have "Food Truck Tuesday" at our local Fire House. Anywhere from 5-10 Local Food Trucks come, and people from all over flock to eat their delicious food. I live just outside of Annapolis, Maryland.

I originally intended for this to be a top folding, A2 size card, which is why the background is all oriented in that direction. As I went along, I liked my focal image oriented in a landscape fashion instead of portrait. So, here it is, my oddly stamped background that I refused to re-stamp. Long live imperfections.
