Color Blocked Wishes

Here's a very CAS and unadorned card I made using the sketch at Create with Connie & Mary and the colors at ColourQ.  I wasn't feeling too well yesterday when I made this, so I kept it very simple.  In fact, it took me longer to decide on the "random" placement of the candy dots than it did to make the card!

I had to hunt through all my DSP to find paper in each of the challenge colors and I have to apologise to the ColourQ team because I couldn't find any Night of Navy DSP at all and had to use Not Quite Navy from Wonderfully Worn.  I think it's a close enough match in this case, though.  The Soft Sky DSP came from an old pack called Western Sky - loved that paper!  Perhaps it's time I invest in some of the new paper stacks!

The sentiment comes from my favorite sentiment set in the catty - Four You.  Love the size and fonts of these stamps.

Thanks for looking.

Products used:

Stamps:  Four You
Cardstock:  Whisper White; Western Sky DSP; Epic Day DSP; Wonderfully Worn DSP
