Simon says use yellow and green and a sketch by inspirational card sketches

So, I am blowing off school work until at least after dinner. I am so burnt out on school. Thank goodness I am almost done! So, I wanted to do some more challenges. They are fun and get the ball rolling on what I should do. So, at inspirational Card Sketches they had a card Sketch. I think the card sketch was probably more suited for 6x6 cards but I like the standard card size. I'm boring like that I guess.
So here is the sketch they posted.

Here is what I came up with in my standard card size.


To further challenge myself I combined it with the simon says challenge. Whew. Thankfully it was back to more of my favorite muted colors. Simon told me to use Yellow and green. Those were the main colors I used but I threw in some purple as an accent. I didn't have any green flowers so I colored a white one with a copic marker! :) The main stamp is by Whiff of joy. I'm not sure who made the sentiment...just a random stamp I have. Paper is basic grey.

Hi Jen, Lovely card, beautiful muted colours and the WOJ image is just so cute :-) What a fab idea to colour a flower to match with a pen ! I'll remember that tip !!

Thanks for joining the Simon Says Challenge :-)
