Love to Dance -- Color Throwdown Guest Designer for February

Happy Wednesday!!
Hope you are all doing well!!
Today is another fun day at the Color
Throwdown!!  I just love GRAY... so this
color palette made me sooooooooo HAPPY!!

I have used a new and gorgeous image from my team
All Dressed Up by Wendy Burns called, "Love to Dance"!!


This long card with super fun layout is a design
that I saw on my friend Sue's amazing blog!!
She has used this fantastic design for 2 
super cute cards in recent months 
and I knew that I had to try it
for my long and lanky 
ADU images!!


Love these fun colors!!
Let's go see what the other
Color Throwdown ladies have today...

  14. Oh, my gravy, Nicole, what a fabulous Valentine you have created! I LOVE that design!! It's too bad I didn't use any darker pinks on my card today or I could have entered it. Maybe I'll get a chance to make an entry later.

    Thank you for your visits today and for leaving all those fantastic comments. You don't have to comment on each one when you are catching up, my dear. I know how time is so very valuable! When I get behind I just visit all the posts, but only leave one comment which is still appreciated because we all know how life gets busy! You are the sweetest friend to take that time!!

    I hope you have a fun Valentine's Day with your mister and those sweet girls!! Hugs, Darnell
