Color Throwdown

Hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday! Since it's hump day, that means it's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge and Joan has got a combo worth roaring about! :-) 

I decided to add the bokeh effect to my smooshed distress ink background.  Some looped string and die cut stars and sentiment made this card come together quickly.  Actually, it took me far longer to come up with the idea that it did to create it (isn't that often the way?!).  I thought this would work to give to a co-worker who is leaving or retiring.

STAMPS: Sending and Wishing by Simon Says Stamps.
PAPER: Tim Holtz watercolor CS, White (PTI), Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise, Black.
INK: Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Tumbled Glass distress inks; Versafine Onyx Black; ColorBox Frost White pigment ink.
ACCESSORIES: Stitched rectangle and stars dies by Lil' Inker Designs; Wishing die by Simon Says Stamp; Avery Elle sequins; White thread.
