Color Throwdown #128: Dreams

Hi Everyone,

It's been so long since I have played along with the lovely ladies over at the Color Throwdown and as soon as I saw this awesome and fun color combo, I totally wanted to play along and couldn't wait to play.
I loved the different tones of red and pink and then the pop of purple with the black was really such a cool color combo!
I decided to make a CAS card - very simple and I tried to keep it really clean and have more white space with the strong colors:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: From stash and Taylored Expressions SNow White choice cardstock
Stamps: New Beginnings stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Ink: RoseRed Ink and Tuxedo Black ink from Memento
Accessories: liquid pearls, bling from Bazzill, corner chomper, Frame it Up Die #1 from Taylored Dies, Big Scallop die from Taylored Expressions, copics and dimensionals. 

I used the sweet sentiment: "If you can dream it, you can do it" from the New Beginnings stamp set from Taylored Expressions and used the Frame it up Die #1 to cut out the frame in this stamp set. The butterfly is stamped in RoseRed ink and then cut out and the rose is colored with copics and then glitterized and popped up on the bottom of the frame. I used different color papers from my stash for the different colors in this challenge and tried to keep everything very simple (no ribbon! --- gasp!!! :)

I love how this turned it out - I would have never combined colors like this and that's what I have always loved about playing the different color challenges - to have fun combining the different colors out there and seeing what comes out! I can't wait to look at everyone else's different color combination - you can see everyone else's creations for this color challenge #128 over here

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hope your day is warm and lovely!
Big hugs,
