For my next trick on this challenge roll I'm on, I combined the current OWH color combination:

"CANTALOUPE and PISTACHIO (or orange sherbet and teal?). I was going for summery pastel colors – something that felt cool and refreshing like a tall glass of water flavored with a hint of cucumber and mint."

and the current CAS(E) This Sketch! sketch (which is combined with the Fusion challenge this week, but I didn't use their photo - just the sketch):

Here's my card, then I'll explain:

As soon as I saw the CANTALOUPE and PISTACHIO at OWH, I knew I needed to dig out my Cosmo Cricket Clementine paper pack. I think they're a perfect match for the challenge!

The flowers were left from the ones I cut for my previous card, and I used another of my eleventy bazillion brads for the flower's center. I no longer have the patience to see if my hole punch will reach far enough to punch without mucking up the edges of my paper, so I just reach for my paper piercer to poke the hole exactly where I want it.

The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of the same paper used for the card base, and it's popped up on foam tape. I kinda like it. :)

This card was actually simple enough that I could make some more like it and maybe disappear the rest of that Clementine paper pack. Well, I could. We'll see.

I'm off to link up, then I'll be back with another challenge card.

Thanks for stopping by!
