Color Throwdown Challenge #351

Hello everyone!! I can sure tell that it's July in Texas because it's rather hot outside these days...thank goodness for air conditioning!!! I need to appreciate the warm weather cause one of these days I will blink my eyes and it will be winter again....after last winter I think I can wait a while for the next one...LOL!!! Anyway...

It's Wednesday again and time for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Monika is our hostess and she has picked a glitz and glam color combo: pink, purple, black monochromatic with sparkle!!! 

My card features the cute Little Bits - Bicycle die from Taylored Expressions. The bicycle was cut out of Oreo cardstock and adhered to the background that was stenciled with Memento Lilac Posies and Grape Jelly inks. The sentiment from the Taylored Expressions Bikes and Trikes stamp set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.  The hearts and arrow were  colored with Copic Markers and TE Double the Fun - Girl Sequins were added.

 The purple zig zag diecut was created with the TE Skinny Mini Borders 2 die was cut out of Jelly Donut cardstock and a zig zag piece of sticky tape was covered with glitter for a little glam!! 

Remember, be sure to add CTD351 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd351 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.
