Combination Platter

Today, I combined two challenges into one. I figured I've been entering so many of these (what's this obsession all about, anyways? How can one get addicted so quickly?) that I should perhaps try and combine a colour challenge with a sketch challenge.

All day long at work I'm forced to think about efficiency. Perhaps it's that I just can't help myself but try and find the most effective way to complete two tasks by a given deadline ; )

Not that I find crafting to be a "task". Quite the contrary in fact. I enjoy myself immensely when I can sit and make a card.

Pals Paper Arts challenge is where the colours came from. I'm SO loving the Lucky Limeade (SUs new In Colour), and I find that it creeps up in so many of my cards (take a peek, you'll see!). PPA has also added in Island Indigo and Daffodil Delight (which I don't own, so I had to go generic for that one).

And then over at Mojo Monday, they have a lovely sketch that I followed. I had a hard time picking a sentiment for this card, so I decided to go with "Celebrate" since it's so very generic.
