Color Throwdown Challenge #365

Hello everyone...hope you have had a good week!! My sister and her hubs were here last week....they left last Saturday and went home to 30 degree weather...yikes!!! We were down in the 60's at night but it's still in the 80's during the day. I have got to get to Lowes tomorrow to buy some fall plants.... I love the beautiful fall mums!! 
BTW....we went to see Bridge of Spies last night...if you get a chance, go see it because it's a wonderful movie!!! Anyway....

It's Wednesday and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Broni is our hostess this week and she has picked a color combo with a real punch: red, fuschia, black, and white...oh la la!!!

My card features the Love Bird dies from WPlus9...the birds were cut out of black cardstock and adhered to the top of the Reverse Confetti Wreaths Confetti Cuts diecut that was cut out of red cardstock. The background was watercolored with Pink Passion Reinker and the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Crushin It stamp set was stamped in the center. 

The Baker's Twine from The Twinery and the sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD365 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd365 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.
