Color Throwdown Challenge....

Happy Wednesday/Hump Day Everyone!
It's Color Throwdown day & this one was really hard for me! The challenge is to use Ruby Red, Basic Gray & Baja Breeze.....WHAT?!!! I didn't know how my card was going to come out....couldn't even think of a good sketch that would work for me so I just went with your basic square and kept adding layers LOL!! I kinda/sorta like the final result so a big THANKS to the throwdown ladies for a *REAL* challenge this week!!

I'm off to take care of *household* duties.....food, banking, laundry & stuff----can't they just wait 'til I want to do those things?!! I guess not LOL!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!
TTFN,
Hugs,
