Color Throwdown & Deconstructed Sketch

Welcome aboard to another Color Throwdown Challenge! Tammy has an awesome color combo for us this week and since I'm still making Valentines to sell at work, I went with the love theme once again. I goofed and used white instead of vanilla, but since it's so close, I decided not to sweat the petty stuff (or to pet the sweaty stuff - lol)!

I'm using Jen Shultz' great layout for the Deconstructed Sketch Challenge.  Once again, I used MFT's Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics plus a Fancy Frames Tags Two die by Spellbinders.  The tiny tag is a PTI die and the sentiment is from PTI's Tiny Tags set - another of my fave "go to" sets when I want to tuck in a tiny tag somewhere.  The winged heart is a newly purchased set by Verve called "Wings of Love". The larger heart was die cut using Verve's "Wavy" Hearts die.  Papers are from Echo Park's "Yours Truly" 6x6 pad.

For more challenge details, hop on over to the Color Throwdown Challenge blog and for more great inspiration from the other designers, stop by their blogs listed below.  We're thrilled to have Kim Hahn - a super talented regular participant in the CTD challenges - join us as guest designer for the month of February!  Welcome Kim!
