Color Throwdown #50

Welcome back to another Color Throwdown color challenge!! Broni was in charge of the colors this week and she picked an awesome color combo for a birthday card...IMO. This worked all well for me since today is dd's 10th birthday and this card is for her. Monkeys are her most favorite thing in the world right now so I'm sure she will like it! I'd also like to wish our guest designer Juliana a very Happy Birthday today too!!

Here are the colors for this week...



and here is my card...images by DRS Designs...



Michelle Monkey (E871)(drawn by Dustin Pike for DRS) is tops on Allie's list so I had to use her as the focal point! I stamped the solid balloon (E491) in each of the colors and added some string so they don't fly away! I stamped the DRS grass image (E059) in dark green and sponged on some blue for the sky. It's hard to see but I stamped the interlocking star background (H819)on the green panel, in versamark. The vertical sentiment (D885) was perfect for my sketch...some jewels finished things off.

Be sure to check out the rest of the teams cards...
