Color Throwdown #377

Welcome friends! I'm so glad you are hear for your weekly dose of color with the Color Throwdown.  I'm thrilled to be your hostess this week. I am gearing up for the love holiday that is right around the corner and as a mom of all boys, I am always on the hunt for a unique color combo other than red and pink for my guys. Kraft, Gray and Yellow was just want I was looking for. I hope you are inspired by the photo, the touch of rustic with a little bit of feminine just makes my heart happy.

I had the perfect new to me die set just waiting for this challenge. It's the Maggie Holmes Open Book Love This and I was thrilled to see that Vanessa had it in stock in her shop, Butterfly Reflections! I had been crushing on that deer since Christmas time. I cut him from kraft cs and then ran it through my die cut machine with a woodgrain impression plate. I gave it some dimension with a sponging of Walnut stain distress ink. 

I cut the word love in Lemon Chiffon card stock and used the LID Dual Stitched Mats-Rectangle dies to cut the gingham designer paper. I decided at the last minute to stamp the sentiment from Lovey Words Coordinates by Reverse Confetti. I am so proud of myself for once again mixing companies product for my card. Some twine, sequins,and a wood veneer heart finished the look. 

Check out what the Color Throwdown Team has created today!
