Color Throwdown Challenge #379

Hello everyone!! I sure hope your week was wonderful!! We have been busy with soccer and basketball games...Ryan only has one more game on Friday so our basketball season will be over but Mackenzie's soccer games continue for several more weeks. Then track season starts and more band and choir concerts till June when our second granddaughter graduates from high won't be long before all the grands are on to college, marriage, and babies...yikes!!! I think I just aged about 10 years...LOL!!! Anyway....

It's Wednesday again and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!! Lynn is our hostess and she picked a color combo perfect for Valentines: pink, purple, gold, and hot pink. 

My card features several Taylored Expressions dies. The Skinny Mini Valentine Border was cut out of Sugar Cube cardstock and adhered to the watercolored background. The tag was cut out of Lollipop cardstock with the 
Build a Tag 2 die and the words were cut out of gold tissue paper with the Pockets & Pages February Script dies. The Love Always Wins Stamp and Die combo die was used to cut out the X's, O, and the little heart from Plum Punch cardstock and the smallest Stitched Banner Die was used to cut out the patterned paper banners.  

The large heart was cutout of a watercolored paper scrap with the Stitched Heart Stacklet and the pink heart was cut out of Strawberry Milkshake cardstock with the Peek-a-Boo Heart die. The hop pink enamel heart and the gold twine fnish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD379 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #379 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.

What a gorgeous Valentine collage! Those tiny heart banners are just such a sweet detail! You are one busy grandmother but I'm sure you enjoy every minute of it all.

How pretty! I love how you used this week's colors! Your watercoloring and layered tag look beautiful!

So pretty! Love the watercolored background. I'm taking a class from Taylor at my (not so) local stamp store this weekend--so excited!
