Chocolate Love - CTD #106

[If you're looking for my MFT VIP Blog Hop card, please scroll down to the next post. Thank you!]

It's time to throw down some color at the Color Throwdown! Are you ready? Danielle chose this week's colors and I love 'em!

And here's my card.

I pulled out some of October Afternoon's Farm Fresh paper 'cause it has three of the four colors in it. PERFECT!! Throw a little Kraft into the mix and it's good to go! My layout if Mojo Monday 152, flipped on it's side. The sentiment is from Verve's Love's Flowers set and you *know* I had to use MFT's Open Scallop Border and Rolled Flower Die-namics dies :) The rest is pretty easy.

Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD106 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
