A color challenge

I did this for the color challenge at Kristina's Blog. I've only participated one other time in doing her challenges...usually didnt have the colors to use but now I do so threw this quick card together. The colors where Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White:



And my quickie thank you card:



Actually, I got the colors of cardstock out and kinda stared at it for a bit, NOT liking it at all, lol! But then this card has kinda grew on me, and I'm liking it after getting it all together. The 'thank you' charms I got at Michael's on clearance for like 2 bucks too. I think they were meant to put on bracelets, but I'll get a couple more words out of them and for 2 bucks, thats ok, lol.

Ok, thats it for tonight! Hope everyone is having a good week and TGIF tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by! Ya'll come back now ya here? haha! Been wanting to say that for the longest, lol.

Love the colors and all the different things you put on it. I will definitely have to CASE this one some day.

Those letter charms are so different and make it even better than just stamping a sentiment.

Sorry I haven't been around too much lately. Hope you and yours are doing well!
