Color Throwdown

Hi!

Just popping on with a quick little post and a simple little card! Going back to my CAS style today for a Thank You note and using the Color Throwdown Colors.

I am a little disappointed in that I couldn't capture the dimension in my photograph, but the saffron layer is popped up with foam mounting tape, and the butterfly wings are actually bent upward glued in the center, and I added some beautiful yellow pearls to the center. The sentiment panel is mounted up as well.  My sentiment is from Wilson Designs Everythings Owlright. My buttons are a variety I have on hand, but most of them are from Stampin' UP!
Before I go, I thought I would share my "not so great pictures" from the final Shuttle Endeavour launch today. I am fortunate enough to be about an hour away from the launch pad, so we can see it come up above our trees.  I had my camera in hand, but not on the right setting, so missed the best photo op, but I figured I would share what I have anyway. 

Hope you all are off to a great week so far!

That is so cool that you got a photo op of the shuttle!
