Raspberry Suite Color Challenge 21

Happy Thursday all!

I hope you're having a fantastic day. I wanted to share with you the card I created for this week's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. Here's the great color scheme that Dawn came up with:

I love the light aqua and chocolate combination (our bedroom is actually decorated with those colors). I don't use yellow in my cards very often, but I love the combination with the aqua. It's so bright and fresh - it reminds me of spring. I'm VERY ready for spring (as I sit here snowed in from the storm we had last night!) This combo was definitely a challenge for me, but one I loved taking on. Here's what I came up with:

I think this would be a great card for cheering up a friend during this never-ending winter we seem to be having. Supply list can be found below. Thanks for looking!
