W plus 9 color cue challenge and Card Patterns #57

Cardstock: Bazzill; Stamp: TPC Studio; Ink: Jo-Ann stores; Ribbon: Michael's stores; Punch: EK Success; other: flowers, buttons, embroidery floss

Happy April! The sun is finally shining here and it's amazing what that will do for your spirits. Today I want to share a card that I made for 2 challenges. First is the color cue challenge from W plus 9 Design Studio. Isn't this a happy color combo?

The teal I had on hand is darker than the one shown in the challenge cue, and it looks a bit darker in the photo, but I think it's a nice contrast to the brighter pink and yellow. The sketch I used is Card Patterns #57.

I really like the simplicity of this sketch. I think it has a very balanced look. This was very easy to put together, which was just what I needed during a busy week!

Thanks for stopping by, and for the sweet comments you leave. I appreciate every single one!

I love the tone-on-tone you did with the buttons and flowers. I usually go for the contrast, but this looks wonderful...hmm, I think I know what I'm trying next. ;o)
