Color Throwdown #405 - Hello Friend

Happy Thursday!

Here is my card for the current  Color Throwdown challenge.  I was so excited to see this week's colors because I had already been experimenting with the Some Like It Hot stamp set from PaperTrey Ink.  

It took a while to get the layering correct on the pineapple, but it was worth it once I did.  So I had the green and yellow taken care of.  I added a light blue water colored background to my tag to incorporate the blue.  I added some black accents as well.  I used black paint to spatter the background, but it shows up purple (who knew?)  Oh well! 

Here is the inspiration photo:

You  have plenty of time to join in the fun because this is just the second day of the challenge!   You can click right here for the link to participate. Be sure to take a look at what the designers have created.  I noticed lots of pineapples!!
