2S4Y and Color Cue {8} Challenge

EDIT:  This card was picked for the Fab 5 at 2S4Y!  Thank you Laura and Kazan!! :)

This is my first time playing with a Color Cue combo and let me tell you....I am in love!  This is such a great mix of colors and I just knew I had to play along!

And when I saw Kazan's sketch, I knew I could mix the two and hopefully come up with something fun!  I just love this sketch!!


So here is my take on this sketch with an amazing color combo....

I thought the argyle in the background was kinda fun!  PTI's new Harvest Gold is such a great yellow too!

Hope you are having a great day!
