Hope Your Day Is Fabulous - CTD #115

Today's Color Throwdown is hosted by none other than sweet li'l [Inker] Laura this week and she chose these colors:
They are totally Halloween colors but I'm pretty much done with Halloween, so I played it safe with a birthday (or any other fabulous day) card.

Cosmo Cricket's Pixilicious collection is perfect for these colors! For the Perfect Plum layer I stamped some images from PTI's Embellishments set randomly in Versamark. The a layer of patterned paper matted with Dusty Durango and finally this sentiment from Signature Greetings along with another image from Embellishements. Some ribbon and buttons to anchor the focal image finished it off!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
