Color Throwdown Challenge #117

Hi all!  I'm here with a quick post today because I have TWO more posts I need to share.  One for the JUGS challenge from LAST Saturday and the other for the Just Rite blog hop. Keep an eye out...the latter will go live at 9 am central :]

Today Tammy is our hostess with the mostess and she chose a color palette that could go in several directions based on what you're inspired by this time of year.  Check it out:
I chose to use an autumn palette focusing primarily on the red and kraft (I actually substituted caramel). 
I DID use tangerine and marina mist!  The paper that my leaf is cut from (where you see a smidge of tangerine in the gradient and the MTME Just For You sentiment is stamped in marina mist) is a FREE sheet included with the Marvelous Maple Leaf cut file!  These are part of the November release at My Time Made Easy!  If you haven't checked out the release yet, you don't want to miss it!  Start with Lauren's blog to see her amazing samples and the store to view the new products. 
The graph paper is from my MTME Get Graphic - Collection 1 and Collection 2 Pretty Printables digi packs.  I added some crushed, tan ribbon that my sweet friend, LeAnne sent me, a button...and LOTS of dimensionals!  I sponged the distressed edges of my panels using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The layout is my interpretation of Jen Del Muro's SFYTT from last Saturday.
Okay, that's all I have for you today!  I'll be back shortly with the Just Rite blog hop and later or tomorrow with my very late JUGS project!  We certainly hope you can play along with us this week!  If you do, be sure to add a direct link to your post over at the CTD blog and use keyword CTD117 in any online galleries!  Before you get started, feel free to absorb a TON of inspiration on the CTD gals' blogs...check 'em out:
