Thinking of You with ColorQ 78 and Inspirational Card Sketches 108

Hello Cuties!

**Yay! This card was chosen for Colour Queen Courtier and the winner at Inspirational Card Sketches**


It's Wednesday and we are half way to the weekend, so I hope this mid-week check-in finds you all doing well!

I fell in love with the color combination over at the ColourQ blog!  The colors were Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, Kraft, Early Espresso, and White.
My layout inspiration came from Inspirational Card Sketches which is a "new to me" sketch blog. I had fun playing along for the first time!
Check out the yummy inspiration for these great sites!
The stamps I used were all from DeNami Designs.  I used N136 the Medium Polk Dot stamp to create the pink polka dot pattern paper in the middle section.  In the Martha Stewart Doily is the F182 Round Leafy Tree finished off with the Thinking of You sentiment from the TR16 All Occasion Sentiments Stamp Set. I love love love this set and use it often.   
At the bottom, a strip of carnival tickets with some yummy buttons were added to complete my take on the sketch.  I took the liberty to add a seam binding bow.   I am just in love with the stuff! J
I am also playing along with: Bring It On: Anything Goes (optional charm), Stamp Something: Spring, Stamps R Us: Celebrate Spring, My Craft Spot: Tie a Bow.
Well, that's it for me on this post....I have a cute little man who wants to play outside and we have some bad weather coming, so I better scoot so he can get some play time in! J
