Pretty Palette challenge

I missed last week's Pretty Palette challenge and I am happy to be back in the groove! And this week our color palette is so pretty and springy~


I love pastels and I needed a card for Easter so this was the perfect selection! While it's April 1 and RELEASE DAY at My Time Made Easy, I turned to another set for my card -


I used the Just for You set which is one of my favorites because it just has a little of everything for just about any occasion!

Here's some Big Ideas for you this week from this card.

* The three color strips were all embossed together so when they were lined up and adhered to the card front, the embossed pattern would flow from one to another.

* The wheelbarrow was stamped in black and this created black grass in the image. To change that, I took a scrap of green cardstock and hand cut a few "spikes" of grass and then adhered over the stamped grass in the image, giving me green to match the vertical strip.

This card will hold a gift card for some special people (can't say who right now) on Easter so the sentiment "A little something" was just right - kind of describes the little wheelbarrow image too!

That's it for me today  - I hope you'll stop by and see what the rest of the team created with these colors and then join in the fun! You can use any products but you will definitely want to check out what's new at MTME - sooooo pretty!! See you again soon!
