Color Throwdown Challenge #227


Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!It's the lovely Lynn's turn to host the challenge and she has picked some soft, pretty colors....I thought they would be perfect for a Valentine!!


My card features a croched heart with a button, stick pins, and twine details. The Cherry Lynn diecut vine was used behind the heart and white craft ink was wiped across the heart embossed background. The sentiment banner was stamped with an old retired Stampin Up! stamp that says Love You and a little sewing was done along the side of the banner.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog - have a heart
2. Shopping Our Stash - Valentines, hearts, red, love, etc.
3. Sweet Stamps Blog - Valentine or love
4. Try it on Tuesday Challenge - Get ready to celebrate Valentines Day

Be sure to add CTD227 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
