Clean & Simple Colour

My card today makes me smile.
I combined this week's Colour Me challenge with a sketch challenge 

There were two sets of colors to choose from and I went with the one on the
left. Strawberry Slush, Hello Honey and So Saffron. These are not colors I would
normally use as I'm not a big fan of yellow or pink  but I am a big fan of Hello Honey 
which is why I chose to use that particular dsp.

The sketch was another challenge for me as scallops aren't something I use
much of. So since I decided to start this blog to challenge myself to go out of
 my comfort zone I decided these were perfect challenges to combine.

I'm really happy with how this turned out - you may be seeing more scallops,
yellow and pink on my cards in the future :)

card stock: whisper white
dsp: lullaby 
stamp sets: petite petals, beanstalks (CAS-ual Fridays)
ink: strawberry slush, so saffron
big shot: large scallop edgelit
punch: petite petals
embellishments: whisper white baker's twine, basic pearls

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!!
