PTI Chicks Color Challenge Take 2

So while I was working on my card for this color combo challenge, I changed things quite a few times. Fortunately I ended up with 2 cards! AND this card also qualifies for the Three Cheers for Chairs Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. If you have some time,  you should play along!


This card will be sent to my best friend. I have known her for 30 years now. I met her when I was a shy 12 year old and moved to a new town. She was an outgoing chatterbox who made me laugh harder than anyone on this planet. And she still does!! She likes to refer to us as "Lucy and Ethel". Two good friends who get into a lot of mischief. Yep, that's us! Only I'm not sure I like being Ethel. ;)

I had fun with my new Cosmo Cricket pad! I was so excited when I saw that the flower and striped paper had almost every color from the color challenge. Debbie Olsen does some amazing works of art with this company's paper. I have another Cosmo pad on it's way to me and can't wait to use it!! This layout was very basic but I wanted to show off the papers. I don't have much experience with mixing all types of patterns so I was  hoping that because I bought a matching set of paper, it would match. What do you think?
