Kristina's Color Challenge and Mercy's Sketch Challenge!

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope that you are all enjoying this wonderful day that the Lord has made! :D It is so great to have Nick's family here. I am so fortunate to have such wonderful in-laws. They are fantastic! I am looking forward to spending the week with them. We are leaving this afternoon. Anyway, I made this card for Kristina's fun color inspiration challenge and Mercy's great sketch challenge! I love the simplicity of the sketch and the colors are so fun and summery. I just thought the colors and sketch are perfect together! Nick thinks this card may be TOO simple. I am hoping not. He is the one to told me to add the paper piercing. Hehe. I don't give my hubby enough credit. He really does have great ideas! I was going to round the bottom corners until I realized that I couldn't round the bottom right corner because the navy piece was too low. I discovered this AFTER I had rounded the other corner so I decided to round the opposite corner. It looks kind of cool. Again I didn't do any stamping on this card. I was trying to make a quick card so I did.

Recipe:
Stamps: None

Paper: Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, So Saffron

Ink: None
Accessories: Ribbon, Rub-ons, Dimensionals, Corner Rounder Punch, Paper Piercer
