Color Throwdown #327- Love you to pieces!!

Good Morning... it's time for another Color Throwdown challenge. Wanda is bringing us the colors this week.... and there's purple :) Honestly, if you've ever stopped by my blog, you would know that "purple" just throws me for a loop! I think these girls have forced helped me get over that!!

I loved the whole mosaic thing going on and tried to recreate that with my card.

My colors are a little bit darker. Used Lil Inkers Stitched Hearts and the sentiment is from Piece of Me. Stamped the background with SU's Gorgeous Grunge to add a little sumthin'- I so struggle with totally white backgrounds... it's an affliction I tell ya'!!

We’re also joined by January’s guest designer: Bonnie Sharp.  Bonnie- Loved having you this month!!

Marlena from Marlena is Faithfully Crafting is our Guest Star Stamper this week!!

Love this fabulous card! That is a perfect sentiment to pair with a patchwork heart! I'm with ya with not liking purple and couldn't believe I picked a photo with purple in it - lol! Guess I just fell in love with that Etsy heart. :-)

Shelly said...

What a great card! Love the pieced heart and the sentiment! The grunge is soo needed as I have an opposition to all white backgrounds too! TFS!
