Valentine Color Throwdown

If you are checking to see if you won my blog candy, the winner is posted on the original post here. Good luck!

Wow, the Color Throwdown colors for this week are fabulous...Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, and Riding Hood Red! I couldn't wait to make this card! I chose to use these fat little cupcakes from Taylored Expressions. It's called A Year of Sweets and this is set one of four. This is actually a larger stamp with more images on it (a cupid, some clouds and three hearts), but I only wanted these fat little cuppies that barely fit into my Labels One die! So cute though, don't you think? They are colored with copics (I wish I would have left off the dots on their cheeks!), and I ysed some round bling for the cherries and placed a heart bling between them. I used SU's Bella Rose dp since it had all three colors of the challenge in it. And how about that ribbon? I just picked it up today at Michael's. I knew the colors of the challenge and could not pass up this one (and two others similar to it!)! I had to have it for this card! I used the slot punch to punch a hole just beneath the sentiment and tied the ribbon with the stylized silver hardware thingy (don't remember what it's official name is) through the slot. The sketch is from today's sketch challenge on SCS found here. On the inside, I cut another shape with the largest Labels One die in Pink Pirouette and used the sentiment from Verve's Hundred Hearts in Riding Hood Red. That's all for today, folks! Thanks for stopping by and starting year two of blogging with me!
