Color Throwdown Challenge #225


Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! The wonderful and ooooh so talented Kerri is our hostess this week and what gorgeous colors she picked for our stamping pleasure!!! I thought they were perfect for a Valentine!!

My card features stamps from the Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz  set called Love Struck. The cupid and heart  images were stamped on the designer paper and the kraft card base at the same time then the Melon Mambo matting was added. The sentiment banner, lace, twine, and the button finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. The Craft Room Challenge - Valentine
2. Love's Rubberstamps Challenge - cute as a button - use at least one
3. The Order of the Opus Gluei - pink

Be sure to add CTD225 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

Oooh, that is a rich palette your hostess has chosen for this inspiration. And, yes, I think it is calling out for a Valentine's card. You did a beautiful one, it's romantic but has a clean edge to it as well and uses our Opus Gluei theme of pink in an orginal and fun way.

Thanks so much for coming over to play with us, I hope we coaz you back for more challenges with us!
