Throwback Thursday Challenge with Emma

Good Morning everyone. It is looking to be a cool but sunny day here in Wisconsin, we have had so much wind, rain and cloud cover I will be very happy with a little sunshine. Emma over at http://www.creativetimeforme.com/ has another TT challenge for us....we are to use the Doodlecharms cartridge if we have it or any other older cartridge and  make a project including the color Blue. So I have made a 5 x 7 card.....hope you enjoy!! I had a great time with this one because I got to use Emma's stamp set My Little Firecracker which I love!!
