You Make My Heart Happy - Color Throwdown Challenge #629


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week's hostess is Vickie and she has a darling Valentine themed color combo for us to play with.

I stuck with the Valentine's Day theme and used Heart Rays Die-namics as my focal point, created with Red Hot and Ripe Raspberry card stocks. The background was created by stamping Romantic Script Background on Sweet Tooth card stock in a distressed manner, then I stamped Distressed Patterns Stamp Set with Red Hot and Ripe Raspberry dye inks.

Once done, the background was popped up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base and I added Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle STAX, cut from Silver Sparkle card stock and adhered with foam tape, then Heart Rays Die-namics was also popped up on foam tape.

The sentiment, from Smitten With You, was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock, cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics and popped up on foam. I finished off with some glitter enamel dots.

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 #CTD627 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd627 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!
