Color Throwdown #406 - Hello Friend


Happy Thursday!

Here is my card for the current  Color Throwdown challenge.  I die cut my pineapple onto white card stock and then colored in both the fruit and the "headdress".  You can barely see the original headdress because I added to it with some additional die cut ferns colored in hues of green and pink. I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens to create the pretty blended colors.

I chose some hemp twine to add in just a little more of the natural feel to the card.
  I wasn't sure at first if I even liked my pineapple, but now I am convinced that it is indeed pretty cool.

Here is the inspiration photo:
