August Sister Challenge, Day 2 + CPS #179

Even though I had intentions of going to the gym this morning, I slept in instead. Oops. I went to the mall with my sister to get some birthday gifts, did some laundry, took a nap in freshly laundered sheets (ahhh), and then finished off the day with a family BBQ.

Today's card suffices 2 challenges today: a sister one and CPS #179. My sister picked out the orange My Mind's Eye paper, the sentiment, and the hearts. I saw that CPS posted a new sketch challenge, so I figured I'd use it as inspiration. I think the color palette is a little off, but I think it can be fixed in a future card by switching out the orange paper.

Card Specs:
Ink: StazOn in Jet Black, Colorbox chalk ink in Warm Green, Warm Red, Prussian Blue
Stamp: Fiskars- Petals From Scratch (leaf/stem), Fiskars- Sentiments (sentiment), Fiskars- Friendly Flowers (ladybug), Fiskars- Romance (border, hearts)
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
Brad: Recollections- Silver Circles
Paper: My Mind's Eye- Bloom & Grow

I agree that the orange looks a little strange with the blue, but I really love the texture of that paper. Bet you could make it in two sets of colors.

I'm loving those heart petals.
