Michelle Perkett Challenge #38 - Color Combo and Sketch!

This week at Michelle Perkett's challenge blog we had the choice of either a color combo, a sketch, or a combination of both.  I chose to use the color combo, shown below.

I used the bathing beauty "Olive", a real looker!!  I decided to make an easel card, instead of using the sketch.  I cut the card with my Cricut Wildcard cartridge.  The shape is called doiles, but I thought it made a cute flower card.  Here she is.

These were my closest colors to turquoise.  Didn't I tell you she was a "looker'!.  Here is the card opened.

The sentiment "Oh Happy Day" was also cut with the Cricut cartridge.  I thought it was a perfect expression for spending a day at the beach.  Last but not least, a close-up of the sentiment.

The designer paper, is sheet music.  It is some I have had for ages, I am using that for the sand color, and I thought it went well with the saying, because I think it's the name of a song  I have heard.
