A Color Challenge

     Here we are, with another week almost behind us.  I found a few extra minutes to play this week in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week it is a color challenge.  It is called the Inspiration Color Swatch.
     When I saw the soft pretty colors, I went digging in my stash of card stock bits, and that is what I use.  I did use one sheet of Authentique paper from the Grace collection.  My garden lattice die is from Poppy Stamps, and the little flowers were punched with a SU bitty Accents punch.  I added MS leaves, and blue pearl centers from Michaels.  The stamp set I used is from Avery Elle, called Circle It.  My pink panel was embossed with a Sizzix Decorative Dots folder.  I needed something for the middle, so I made a paper diploma, and tie it up with some mint satin ribbon.
     I would also like to enter my card over at Pixie's Snippets Playground # 175 & #176, since I used lots of bits to bring this together.
     Thanks for visiting, and have a great start to your weekend!
