Color Throwdown Challenge #65

Hi there everyone! I'm back with another Guest Designer spot for the Color Throwdown challenge. We have a very interesting color combo for you today.
I wasn't sure what I was going to do with this one! I started by pulling out cardstock in these three colors, then looked for dp. I found SU's retired Bali Breeze had the teal and pomegranate in it. So I went with it and this is what it evolved into.
Stamping Bella is the sponsor for this week's CTD challenge and I was given a couple of these Ketto stamps to use. I chose this one called Kenya Ketto. So cute! I colored her with copics in the three challenge colors (I cheated a little on the celery...I didn't have a copic to match celery, go figure!). I cut and embossed the image with circle nesties. I added star dust stickles to her and on her wand is an embellishment I was given from Stamping Bella, but I don't know what they are called! There are two sizes of this "bead" and they are sparkily too. The sentiment is from PTI and the sketch is this week's Taylored Expressions sketch. I added the Purely Pomegranate stitched ribbon to finish it off.

If you'd like to take on this color challenge, visit the Color Throwdown blog and link your direct post to Mr. Linky there. If you post to an online gallery, use the keyword CTD65 so we can find it.
