Frosted Designs Sketch with Just Us Girls Palette

Today started out sunny but quickly the skies turned gray. This time of year I get so tired of seeing the colors outside my window. I'm so ready to see something besides shades of brown and gray. So I'm making bright, springtime-colored cards today from a paper pack I got on a huge discount. Since this is the third week of the month, Just Us Girls Challenge #124 is the following set of colors:

The sketch I used is from Frosted Designs Card Sketch #12.  Frosted Designs always has three challenges goin on at the same time. Besides the card challenge, they have a scrapbook challenge and a Fabulous Friday challenge. This week it's to use brads or eyelets. I accepted that challenge, too, and used both.  I haven't used eyelets much lately and I really enjoy running the baker's twine through the eyelets, so I was glad for that reminder in this challenge. Here's their card sketch:

 Here's my card for the three challenges:

I don't ordinarily get glittered paper packs in girly colors (I have 5 grandsons!), but after several months of winter, my eyes are ready for spring!

6.5" x 5" Card Recipe:
Paper - DCWV "The Sweet Stack"
Stamp - Close To My Heart "Treasure Life"
Ink - CTMH Twilight
Other - CTMH Just Blooms, (Spring Assortment brads and Breeze eyelets, both retired), Baker's twine "Paradise Assortment"
