Color Throwdown #300- Happy!!

Hey... I am the hostess for this week's Color Throwdown Color challenge and here are the colors I chose!

Blues with a touch of orange!!

Here's my card....

The background was sponged with ink using a TCW stencil... abstract panels... the diecut "Happy" is from Serendipity stamps (popped on foam dots)... added some string and enamel dots! FYI... the TCW stencil has several images that mix and match and the Serendipity word dies also come in combos- LOVE!!

Our July Guest Designer is Diane Jaquay from Peaceful Lane.

This week's Guest Star Stamper is Jen Mitchell.
