Reverse Confetti Bright Birthday {color throwdown}

I don't normally work in bright colors. They scare me. lol! But I was completely inspired by the current Color Throwdown Challenge. I needed a birthday card and thought these colors  would rock. I used MFT Lemon Drop, Wild Wisteria, Blu Raspberry and my new favorite Limelight. I added in a panel of white to ground it all and really make the colors pop!

I can't stop using the Documented Confetti cut. I love the rounded rectangle die in the set. I then layered up the solid Class Act Confetti Cut die and the Pretty Panels-Triangles. These set the stage for my giant circle element from Round About Additions stamped in Limelight on Limelight card stock. The large circle stamp was cut with the largest solid circle from Circle's 'n Scallops. I added a variety of Oh, My Stars Confetti Cuts and some white enamel dots. 

My yellow panel needed just a little something else. Tone on tone stamping always does the trick. I stamped So Many Stars in the background and then adhered all my layers together. It's such a fun card. 

Here is the challenge graphic.

Enjoy your Friday and the start to your weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
