Color Throwdown #351- Smiles!!

It's time for this weeks Color Throwdown colors!! It's hump day too!! I'm hoping this WE to get some stamping R&R since I haven't had a lot of time this summer- there are some challenges I've been missing!!

Monika picked the colors this week...

Aren't they bright and beautiful!!!

Honestly- purple has always thrown me off and with pink.... I was a little nervious but, I had fun making this card using Ellen Hutson's Essentials designed by Julie Ebersole- Bokeh Dots and the sentiment/sentiment die is from Simon Says Stamp Wishing/Sending. I used this weeks CASe this sketch for the layout. The gold dots are my sparkle- Delicata gold ink (love this stuff!)
