Color Throwdown #304

Hello!  So I dropped the ball on participating in more challenges last week.  My girls and I traveled with my parents to a small town in Wyoming for a family reunion last weekend
.  I got busy with laundry and packing and - much to my dismay - finding out there was a family of mice living in the basement.  ::shudder::  Luckily for me, my hubby dealt with the latter while we were gone.  So anyway, I'm back and ready to post again! 

Today I am participating in this week's Color Throwdown challenge.  Here is the color swatch:

I love these fun, vibrant colors.  They are similar to the challenge I participated in here.  Here is the card I made:

The papers from Fancy Pants' Off to School collection worked so well with these colors, so I decided to make a card for my biggie's teacher.  The bottom sentiment was stamped in Bermuda Bay and stamped the chalk with the Smoky Slate color.  I stamped and colored the apple with the Bermuda Bay and Real Red colors.  Unfortunately, when I brushed on the clear Wink of Stella, the red lightened up a lot.  I'm not sure why my Wink of Stella pen doesn't like me anymore.  It doesn't seem to work the way it used too.  :(  Anyway, I used some sequins to bring out the colors even more and to finish it all off. 

I am linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is Make It Sparkle.  Here is a close up of the hard-to-see glitter on the apple:

That's all for today!  Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time...
