Taking Part in Color Throwdown 422

Hello Everyone!
I'm happy to be taking part in this week's Color Throwdown (#422). I have seen different card maker's projects for past Color Throwdown challenges but after seeing Amy Rysavy's blog post and video for this recent one (422), I just knew it was time to take part.

I made this card for the challenge:

These are the colors for this week's color throwdown:
Navy, Hot Pink, Turquoise & Orange

I love the colors that were chosen - such a fun combo! I looked at my supplies and choose to use: Momento Dew Drop ink pads in Tangelo & Danube Blue; Lawn Fawn's Mermaid ink pad & SSS Doll Pink ink pad. I also used Magenta Ranger Embossing Powder. Additional splashes of the throwdown colors were added with sequins: PPP Aquamarine & Tangerine (4mm) plus the 6 mm flat Orchid sequins. The super small navy sequins are from the Freedom Sequins (Craftin Desert Divas). I also used pink & white bakers twine from Hobby Lobby for a finishing touch. The card base is a SSS top folding A2 card base with a piece of SSS Doll Pink card stock on top. The scallop die is from the Fancy Frames dies (Craftin Desert Divas).

I took a pic on my desk right after I finished the
card to show some of the supplies that I used:

Here are more pics of the card so you can appreciate those gorgeous & bright colors:

I am so happy with the way it turned out! This challenge turned out to be such a fun experience - I know that I'll take part again! Go to the Color Throwdown Blog to see amazing inspiration and maybe you'll want to take part too!

A big thank you for visiting!
Happy Weekend!
