Color throwdown, caardvarks, practicing creativity

Whew!  I decided to make a card to cover three different challenges.  First up, Color Throwndown  is offering up their 100th challenge - very cool.  AND they are giving away a TON of stuff!  It is a color combo I would of never put together but I love the results.  FYI, I didn't have real red so I substituted ruby red.  Next is Caardvarks.  Their requirement is to make a birthday card - no problem!  And lastly, is a sketch from Practicing Creativity.  I think they are a fairly new company.  I don't have any of their stamps but they look yummy!  I used this sketch ...
There are more sketches available to participate in their challenge.  Check out this post for all the info. 

I was pretty excited to use my new MFT banner die and the free alphabet set (used to spell WISH) I got for being one of the first 300 orders on their release night this month.  MFT is celebrating 4 years in business.  Ok, so are you ready for the card?  Me too!  Here it is...

Stamps: MFT 4th bday alphabet set, PTI get to the point sentiments, Inkadinkado circles and spots
Cardstock: SU ruby red,certainly celery, baja breeze, cream, regal rose
Ink: SU ruby red, certainly celery, baja breeze

Pattern Paper: MME Laundry Line

Misc: MFT banner die (don't you LOVE it?), embroidery floss and needle, SU celery ribbon
And if you are counting, this is the 3rd post for the day!  I am in a card making groove!
