Kwerner Color Inspiration #56

Thanks everyone who took time to watch my first video! It was really nice to get some encouragement, and I might do some more in the future!

Tonight, I took some time to participate in Kwerner's color challenge. I was originally worried about so many colors, but when I pulled out the colors I loved them together. Now, that doesn't mean this card was fast, because it 100% was not. It took me forever, but I'm really pleased with the end result. Here's the colors (click on the image to see the other participates):
And here's what I came up with! It's a lot cuter in person because you don't get the glare off the sticker, but you get the idea!Stamps: Garden Galore (Inkadinkado)
Stickers: American Crafts
Paper: PTI White, Saffron, Celery, Ballet Blue, Red, Pumpkin
Ink: White
Ribbon: Celery
Well, I'm off to read. I finally finished A Glass Castle, and wow I'm still thinking about that book. It's amazing to learn about how different people live in this country. You can read about it here.
