Floral Congratulations Card

The color green is one of my favorite colors.  My paper stash includes many different shades of green.  There is olive green, emerald green, dusty green, leaf green, bright green, and I could go on.... but you get the picture.  So, where was the mint green when I needed it?  Well, evidently the law of creativity states that what you need you never have.  This weeks color challenge at The Play Date Cafe includes: mint, soft yellow, coral, and tulip.  The colors together are very soft and pretty and I was determined to find something that worked.  I ended up using a patterned paper from Emma's Shoppe Collection from Crate Paper.  The design for this floral congratulations card is from this weeks sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches designed by Jen Mitchell.  Creating with circles is always fun and this card was no exception.
