I’m Smitten With You–Color Throwdown Challenge #578

Hi everyone and welcome to a brand new
Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lynn is our hostess and she’s got a sweet winter color combo for us.

For this card I used
MFT’s Impressive String of Hearts Die-namics along with silver hot foil to create this focal point on Sweet Tooth card stock. I colored the hears with Copic markers and highlighted with a white gel pen. I cut it with Elegant Rectangle STAX, matted it with Wild Cherry card stock similarly cut, and popped it up on a Cement Gray card stock base after tying around some baker’s twine.

To finish off I added a sentiment from Smitten With You Stamp Set heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. 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 CTD578 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd577 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our super talented January Guest Designer, Amy Tsuruta, who is joining us for another month since we only had two challenges in December!
