Color Throwdown 179

It's Color Throwdown Challenge time and Kristen has some really yummy colors for us this week!
This was the Valentine card I sent to our oldest son and his wife who are both avid bikers.  I downloaded and printed some designer paper from the Candy Kisses collection at My Time Made Easy - LOVE this pattern!  The card is 5 1/4" square and the paper was printed at 5 x 7" size which scales the pattern to a perfect fit for cards! 
The hearts were die cut using SU's new Framelits Hearts Collection.  The kraft heart was run through a crimper and sponged with white pigment ink.

We'd love to see what you create with these colors!  Remember, if you don't have the exact colors,  please feel free to substitute colors that are close! Make a card or paper crafted project and post it to your blog. Then use the direct link from your blog and link it to the Color Throwdown blog using the linky tool. If you post to an online gallery please add CTD179 to the keywords.  For more inspiration, you'll want to check out the other design team members' creations: Barbara Anders, Broni Holcombe, Danielle Kennedy, Joan Ervin, Keva Brown, Kerri Michaud, Kristin Eberline, Lori Tecler, Lynn Put, Tammy Hershberger, and our fabulous guest designer - Jenny Peterson!
