Color Throwdown 278- Happy Times!!

Good Morning friends!! Sorry, I missed last week's challenge... LOVED the colors and I could see that you did too!! I was "up to my eyeballs" in a computer flu bug!!

This week the colors are brought to us by my sweet friend Joan.... another wonderful color palette.

My card...
First up... I have to take my pics at night using Ott lamps... so the background is not as pristine as I would like... maybe a fancier camera? Played with some new "schtuff" again. MPD for MFT Timeless and coordinating die-namics. The background was created by sponging pistachio pudding ink with MPD Graduated Circles stencil and overstamping with an image from SU's Gorgeous Grunge set. I used the Cardabilities sketch. Ha- don't hold me to the clock not being in the correct position... I had it perfect and then added foam dots for dimension and needed to stand up/look down for placement....I've had my eyes checked.... so I know it's a discipline thing, LOL!!
