Color Throwdown #179

Good morning everyone!! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another  Color Throwdown Challenge!! Kristin is out hostess and she graciously provided the CTD designers with some fabulous digi papers she designed that match this weeks colors cool is that!!! Her papers are called Candy Kisses and can be found at
the My Time Made Easy store.
Along with Kristin's beautiful papers, I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #38. The adorable little Rubbernecker Stuffed Bear #88-06 was colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up with foam dots. The Be Mine Text sentiment #28-03 is also from Rubbernecker and the heart was made using Martha Stewart Punches.....ribbon, twine, and a button finishes it off.
Stamps: Rubbernecker Stuffed Bear #88-06, Be Mine text sentiment #28-03
Papers: White, Prism Blush Red Daek, Kristin's Candy Kisses digi dp
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Ribbon, Button, Twine, Punches, Nestabilities, Copics

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Celebrate the Occasion - Valentine's Day
2. Creative Craft Challenges - Valentines
3. Tuesday Throwdown - twine
4. Crafty Bloggers Network - Love is in the Air
5. Hooked on Crafts - hearts

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors to play along...use what ever you have that is similar to the challenge colors. Be sure to add CTD179 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
