CTD186 - Hello There

It's Wednesday and time for the Color Throwdown Challenge.
Danielle is our hostess this week and she's chosen some great colors for us to create with.
For my card I went with a clean and simple look and used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Framed Out #2 and Background Basics: Chevron Stripes.  I've used the My Mind's Eye designer paper from the inspiration photo so many times and love it but I wanted to use the colors for this week's challenge in a bold way.  I decided to use the Chevron Stripes stamp set to create some fun background pattern and a horizontal strip of tempting turquoise with score lines and rhinestones drawing attention to the Framed Out #2 set as my focal point.
