ABC Challenges - Color Challenge, Seize the Birthday #12, Divas by Design and Sweet Stampin Challenge - Scallops

Hello and Happy Monday to each and every one of you!  I was scrambling to get my card done for the Color challenge at ABC Challenges after being out of town this weekend.  Got home to a still messy house (it did not clean itself while we were gone - bummer), loads of laundry and flat exhausted.  I ran right up to my craft room when we got home and began to play. The laundry and house can wait as I was having crafting withdrawals and I had a deadline to meet -lol.  The color challenge this time at ABC Challenges is to use Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery.  If you don't have those exact colors - that's ok - use something similar.  I used Pear Pizzazz instead of the Certainly Celery because that's what I had a scrap of already to use.

These colors are Stampin' Up colors that are soon to be retiring. I am sad to see Pretty in Pink go but I seldom use Bashful Blue or Certainly Celery.  I have to admit that this is a color combo that I only usually use for baby cards or Easter, so I really had to stretch my creative thinking cap to use them in a different way. I decided to make a non-Easter "Springy" card with these colors. For the record this card took me a very lonnnnnggggg time to make because I just couldn't seem to let go of the baby idea.  At one point I even stopped making it and started on a baby card - but then didn't like that and switch back to this one. Isn't it funny how are brains work sometimes? This is proof that even DT members have a hard time with the challenges we come up with from time to time!  I hope you like what I've come up with for your inspiration this week :o)  The other ladies on the DT have also prepared some beautiful cards to share with and inspire you so I hope you will go visit them as well.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges this week:
Divas by Design - Spring Colors
Seize the Birthday challenge #12 
and Sweet Stampin Challenge - scallops.
