CTD191/rs#10 - Smile

It's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!  I'm hostess for this week and I chose the photo below which I found on Etsy.  I really liked the colors and texture of the tissue pom poms and thought that the photo would make for a good inspiration piece.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Four of a Kind and the Retro Sketches Challenge #10 for my layout.  I kept my card clean and simple, starting with a elegant eggplant card base, an embossed panel of cool caribbean (I don't have pool party) and my main panel which which I stamped with my image and sentiment.  I stamped and cut one of the individual blooms, then hand cut it out and popped it up for some added dimension.  I added light green rhinestones to the centers of the flowers tied on my ribbon and added purple rhinestones in the upper right corner.
