Color Throwdown #480

Hello and happy valentines day!

I came downstairs to a house full of flowers with a string quartet playing in the lounge, a cooked breakfast ready to go and a huge diamond eternity ring sat on the bench top which fitted my ring finger perfectly...

Not really. I gave the hubster a cuddle to which he asked 'what's that for?' He then spotted the card I'd left him on the coffee machine and said 'oh I realise now.' That's the extent of valentines romance in our house I'm afraid, although if I get a big box of Maltesers out of it I'll be a happy girl!

Anyway, time for another challenge at The Color Throwdown. It's my second week as guest designer and  Wanda Cullen has a really pretty colour combo just for valentines day for you to play with: 

I'm always saying how I find purple a difficult colour to use  but I really like it paired with the grey. For this one I used CAS-ual Fridays Mon Ami with MFT's background stamp,  Garden Flourish. 

As always the DT have some fabulous cards to share - here's where you can find them:

Amy Rohl - Ink About Me
Barbara Anders - Paper Pursuits
Broni Holcombe - Splashes of Watercolor
Lori Tecler - Inking Aloud
Wanda Cullen - Cullen-ary Creations
Jodi Collins- Stamping a Latte
Lynn Putt- The Queens Scene

Thanks for calling by,



  1. Pretty card. Love how you used this week's colors. And that's pretty much how Valentine's Day goes in my house, too. Lol.

  2. LOL on your post about Valentines Day - dear husband has the nerve to have his birthday today - darn cheek!
    Lovely card - the colour combo is fab.

  3. Hahaha ... there I was thinking you had a romantic DH, Claire ... hope you got those maltesers! Fabulous flourishy background ... and gorgeous shading on that lovely purple bloom! Hugs, Anita :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - they really make my day!
