Hello, Friend-- Color Throwdown #429 and MIM #275

Well hello,

I thought I'd pop in to not only share this card that I'm entering into the challenges but also to let you know I'm still alive and (somewhat) kicking! I actually am chronically ill-- I have over 12 diagnoses and 65 different medications I need to take daily. One of my diagnoses is a rare immune-deficiency disease, which means that even a cold can land me in the hospital or at the very least takes me 6- weeks to recover. Soooo, all that to explain my disappearance since August!

Now, on to the fun stuff! :)

My color combination was inspired by this week's bold Color Throwdown #429 challenge:

And my technique with the "dangles" from the sentiment is from the tutorial Amy did for this week's Make-it-Monday #275. So here is my interpretation:
**All supplies PTI unless otherwise noted.
 My sentiment comes from the Bitty Bouquet set. The lines/"dangles" and bows are from sets by PTI, Mama Elephant and Avery Elle. The "symbols" on the dangles are also from various stamp sets/companies-- Clipsters Mini Kit, Stacked, Avery Elle and Mama Elephant.
Once the front panel was completed, I matted it with Soft Stone Striped patterned paper, which I cut using MFT's Scalloped Rectangles. Then, I wrapped some black baker's twine around the panel 3 times and finished with a bow. Finally, I mounted the finished front panel onto a Hawaiian Shores card base, cut with the Noted: A2 die set.

And that's all! Hope you had a lovely weekend and I look forward to any and all comments!
