Happy Easter




Hi there and welcome, I'm back today with my entry for the CR84FN50 Color Challenge which features the main colors of pink, orange and yellow. What a fun combo to work with, bright and cheery! Before I go any further here is our gorgeous inspiration photo. If you enjoy color challenges be sure to check out all the details at  the CR84FN Color Challenge blog and join us.





The beautiful flowers in the photo begged for a flower on my card too so I happily obliged. I used Stardust Stickles to add a dew like effect to the petals and I stamped an Inkadinkadoo Mindscape stamp, Happy Easter, on a die cut oval in Memento Tangelo ink. The color pink comes in play with the flower and the Lacey Oval die cut  while a yellow ledger dp from Pink Paislee's Sweetness collection completes my color requirements. I based my card on the current sketch over at retrosketches which is a new challenge blog, in fact this is their fourth sketch so feel free to check it out and join in the fun. I should note that I did rotate the sketch but kept all the required aspects intact. :-) 

I'm also going to enter this card in the Make It Monday #82 Challenge and the Tip Top Tuesday #73 Challenge so I'm off to link up. Hope your day is filled with lots of sunshine and happy moments along the way!
