CTD207 Grandmother's Heart

Hello and happy Wednesday morning!  It's time for this week's Color Throwdown challenge and Lori is our hostess this week. Here are the colors she chose...


...and here's the card I made...


I used MFT's Clearly Sentimental About Grandparents for the sentiment, die-cut some flowers and leaves with my newest Die-namics, and added some ribbon.  Tip on the rolled flower dies....after cutting and embossing them through the Cuttlebug (or whatever machine you use), crumple them up in your hand, unroll the crumpled CS, and then roll it smallest side to largest. Also, when rolling, keep it a little loose vs. rolling it super tight.

Here are links to my CTD team so you can check out some more color inspiration...




and our August guest designer, Vickie Zimmer!

Have an awesome day!  :)
