Color Throwdown #390 - Hello Beautiful

Hello Thursday Friends!

I'm sharing this cheerful card for this week's Color Throwdown challenge with you today! 

First of all, let me say that this combination kicked my booty!  Yellow and navy?  Oh my.  I had nothing in my creative arsenal to prepare me for this challenge!  But I plunged in anyway!

 Here is a look at the colors for this week:

I selected the Hello Beautiful stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and used some of the images to create my background pattern.  I used Gina K. In The Navy ink and it turned out to be a great color.  I used the matching card stock for matting.  Regarding this stamp set - it is a valentine set - but it has so many great icons and sentiments, it is easily a year-round stamp set.

You still have plenty of time to join the challenge!   You can click right here for the link to participate. Be sure to take a look at what the designers have created. You will be totally amazed and inspired to create. I am also linking my card to the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp which is another terrific weekly challenge.

See you tomorrow!
