Color Throwdown Challenge #178

Time is truly flying this year.  I can't believe it's already February!  A couple of things stand out to me...we don't have a lick of snow, and I've already missed TWO Color Throwdown challenges :[  The fact that time is flying just means I'm super busy.  Work and my commute soak up a lot of my time, but I'm not complaining.  I thrive when I'm busy, so it's all good ;]  Today, Ms. Keva is our sweet hostess, and she chose the PERFECT palette for a masculine card...which suited me just fine since I'm in need of a masculine Thank You card!  The timing couldn't have been better.  Check out her cool combo:
My card is clean, simple, and flat enough to mail (which is a huge accomplishment for me :).  I used sheets from two of my MTME digi paper packs, Shutt-erfly (recolored), and Get Graphic - Collection 2.  I used Crushed Curry in place of Summer Sun because I'm out of the latter cs.  I chose the MTME Trendy Tags 2 cut file for my sentiment which is from the MTME Sensational Sentiments set.
I added some twill ribbon, hodgepodge hardware and four brads and called it a day.  It's possibly a little TOO simple, but it's just right for the recipient :]  My layout was inspired by the Mojo Monday (MOJO227) sketch.
I almost finished another card with this same color combo and layout, but it's not quite finished.  I'll post it in a day or two :]  Thanks for stopping by today.  Before you head to your craft room to whip up something amazing, swing by my CTD sisters' blogs for a ton of inspiration:
