Fun Colors Thank You Card

Hello! I started a new job on Monday and I'm super tired, so this post will be really quick. Since I haven't worked full-time in over five years, I had forgotten what it's like to have very little time at home during the week. Tonight after dinner I went to my craft room and made this Fun Colors Thank You Card. The colors are from this weeks challenge at Color Throwdown. One thing I love about color challenges is they push me to use color combinations that otherwise I would never think of. The colors are:
  • Coastal Cabana*
  • Crisp Cantaloupe*
  • Strawberry Slush*
  • Rich Razzleberry
Three of these colors are part of the 2013-2015 In Colors* by Stampin' Up! The Coastal Cabana is one of my new favorites and I must say I love it paired with the Rich Razzleberry. The layout for my card comes from the sketch at this weeks Paper Players challenge. I had a hard time deciding what stamp set to use in the circle so I went with the Lacy & Lovely stamp set. I was just too tired to think of anything different. The Coastal Cabana background patterned paper is from the Eastern Elegance dsp and the Rich Razzleberry patterned paper is from the retired Summer Smooches dsp. Well, that's it for me! Have a terrific night or day and thanks for stopping by!

My Fun Colors Thank You Card is entered into the following challenges:
