PDCC77 and CAS Sketch - FTL136

Today's Play Date Cafe color challenge was very bright and spring-y...lots of fun to put this one together. Green is not usually one of my favorite colors, but I really like the bright happiness of this color combo.

I'm still working on my ability to create clean and simple cards that feel finished to me...I don't know if my card qualifies and clean and simple because I added the sofa image, but I just LOVED coloring it! It is a new stamp (my first one!) from Serendipity called Rattan Sofa...such a pretty image.

Here's the CAS sketch:

And here's my card (I'm very happy with how it turned out!):
