Color Throwdown Challenge # 352

Hello, hello!  Today I am participating with another fun Color Throwndown challenge!  I loved the color swatch and decided to use it in kind of an nontraditional way. 

Here is the swatch:

And here is my card:

I started by die cutting the diamond shape out of a piece of cardstock and a piece of glitter cardstock.  I then adhered the glittered piece to a piece of acetate and then adhered it to the back of the other diamond-cut cardstock.  I lined the back with foam adhesive, added some matte sequins in the aqua, green, and dark grey colors, then mounted it all on the front of the card base.  I die cut the sentiment with the same glittered cardstock and adhered it to the card, then stamped the rest of the sentiment around it.  Get all that?  :) 

I am also submitting this card to this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is Sparkle and Shine!  

That is all I have for today!  Until next time...
