Light and Bright Tuesday Trigger Challenge and GS #53

The card I made for you today fulfills two challenges.  The first is a sketch challenge that you can find at Get Sketchy and down below.  The second is the Tuesday Trigger Challenge at Moxie Fab World, which you can also find down below.  Both of these are weekly challenges that you still have time to enter.  The Tuesday Trigger Challenge always uses a picture for inspiration.  This week's picture inspired me by it's colors.  I used lighter shades of blue, pink, and yellow than the picture, but I thought they were a wonderful combination and I couldn't wait to get started.

I had these super cute flowers from Prima that I thought would work wonderful for the circles in the sketch and be the punch of yellow I wanted.  I chose a soft pink card base and all I needed was the blue.  I looked through my papers and the gingham paper from the Fly a Kite Paper Pad by October Afternoon fit perfectly.  I border punched the bottom edge, adhered it, and adhered the flowers with glue dots.  After I stamped my sentiment I thought it needed just a little something else, so I looked through my ribbon stash and found the perfect shade of American Crafts yellow ribbon and added it to the card front.  I think it turned out wonderfully!  I do have to admit that it was a bit of a challenge at first trying to fit into the perameters of two challenges at once, but it stretched my creative abilities and it was good for me.  I would recommend it, it makes you think.  And you just might come up with something completely unexpected and great!  So, take a risk.  Happy Crafting!
