Thinking of You card - TCP & Mojo inspirations

Good Afternoon Everyone,
I have been slacking on doing some challenges - so today's post is actually three separate posts using 6 different challenges (how crazy is that!) But for the simplicity of listing the card ingredients - I am posting it all separately.

This card incorporates the colors from TCP Tuesday and Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch. I wanted to make a simple card and loved the blue and yellow colors together - so I decided to use the red for accent. (my colors are a little off - because I am trying to use only paper from my scrap pile - but I hope its still okay :) I really enjoyed this sketch from Julee it was totally fun and I have been loving doing circles lately - so this was perfect.

I know that Brooke is totally shocked as I am that there aren't any liquid pearl dots all around this card ;) (LOL!!!) I almost did but instead I went the paper piercing route. My hand kept itching to do it - and that's when it hit me: ..... that I am a liquid pearl addict! So I then I had to add some to the flowers... just couldn't help it! LOL!
Anyhoo - it is raining cat's & dogs here (where did that expression ever come from ??)

Thank you for coming over for a visit!,
Ciao for now!
Sankari :)

You really made colors work out for this challenge! That little bit of red here and there makes a difference. And I'm proud of you not using the the liquid pearls! I hope to gather that courage on my stickles... Lol! I am inspired by you to reduce my scrap pile as well.
