Color Throwdown Challenge #279

Hello everyone!! Are you ready for another Color Throwdown Challenge?? Lori is the hostess this week and she has picked such pretty colors...perfect for a Valentine, IMHO!!

It's almost Valentine's Day and I still have a few more Valentines to make...yikes!!! 
My card today features the  Taylored Expressions In My Heart set. The two large hearts were stamped on pink pirouette card stock with real red ink. The smaller two hearts were stamped on Choice Snow White card stock with real red and melon mambo ink. 

Sewing and distressing was done around the edges of the Fancy Pants Be Loved 6x6 paper and the Baker's Twine, button, and heart stickers finish it off. 

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors.....use what you have as long as they are close to the challenge colors and be sure to add CTD279 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You can find out all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
