Color Throwdown #422

Hello everyone!  Welcome back!

Here is the inspiration piece for this week's Color Throwdown #422.  I love, love, love these bright colors!!!

...and here is my card:

I dusted off one of my all-time favorite stamp sets by Papertrey Ink called Dot Spot for this challenge.  This set just screams FUN to me!  I created the background using 3 different sizes of the dotted circles using the hot pink, orange and teal.  I then incorporated the navy into the centers of all of the circles using the two smaller dotted circle stamps and also by placing my card front onto a navy card base.

For the "hello" sentiment,  I cut the "hello" three times from navy cardstock and then stacked them for some dimension.  I stamped the "I miss you" also on navy cardstock and then cut the little fishtail ends.

I finished off the card by placing a sequin into the centers of the navy circles for a little fun sparkle.
