Can You Case It #111, Pick 3 Colors of Your Choosing, A Color Challenge

Honestly, I feel my creative strengths are with sketch challenges.  I don't know why, but I struggle with color challenges...however I am getting better.  For this card I had no idea what 3 colors I was going to use.  I only knew I was making a get well soon card.  First I found this amazing sentiment from butterflies and sunbeams, the August 2015 Unity Sentiment Kit (Unity Stamp Co.).  Next I needed an uplifting image.  I remembered I had this wonderful chipboard bicycle from Crate Paper and I was like, "Perfect."  The sentiment was stamped in Rose Red (Stampin' Up).  The chevron was created using the chevron stencil by Tim Holtz.  It was inked with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink, also Tim Holtz.  The strip of pattern paper is My Minds Eye and yellow clothespin is from Michael's.

I hope you will come and play with us at Can You Case It!?  Thanks for visiting and make sure you visit the rest of the design team.  Until next time...keep crafting in love & peace.
