CTD228 Crafted with Love

Hi all. It's Color Throwdown time and Tammy is our hostess this week. She picked a really pretty color combo for us this week. Check it out:


Here's what I came up with...


The rose stamp is an oldie of mine but one of my favorites to color; it's by Inkadinkadoo (stamp #90438). The sentiments are from Flourishes' Stitched For You.  Yes, I did add a little green to the leaves in my image (G40 Copic), but the rest of the image is strictly reds, pinks, and grays (0, W1, W3, R20, R22, R24, R29).  The sentiments were cut with SU's word window punch and MFT's file tab die.  The background was embossed with my swiss dots embossing folder, and some crochet ivory lace and silver pearls finish it all off. Oh, and the main image is up on foam tape.

Be sure to hop around to see what the CTD girls have created for you today or you can click on over to the Color Throwdown blog to see everything all in one place.
