Hello!  I am sharing a card today for this week's Color Throwdown #429.  Here is the color palette for this week.

...and here is my card:

I started by embossing one of my favorite background stamps of all time (Bundles of Blossoms) onto a card panel of Neenah Solar White cardstock with white embossing powder.   I blended Mermaid Lagoon distress ink onto the bottom of the panel and Carved Pumpkin on the top.  I cut it in half and placed it onto a card base.  I used a die to cut the "hooray" out of black cardstock and then heat embossed it with Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder, added the sentiment, some sequins and voila!

Supplies Used:
Bundles of Blossoms (My Favorite Things)
From Us (Simon Says Stamp)
Hooray (Mama Elephant)
Distress Inks (Carved Pumpkin, Mermaid Lagoon)
Black Lavender Cardstock ( My Favorite Things)
Iridescent Sparkle Embossing Powder (Judikins)
White Embossing Powder (Hero Arts)
Sequins (4mm, 6mm, 8mm Pretty Pink Posh)
