Heart 2 Heart Challenge - color challenge

Heart 2 Heart Challenge is challenging us with a color challenge this week.  The color combo is Sunkiss Yellow, Sky and Sweet Leaf.

Sunkiss Yellow?  Have I ever used it before?  No.  In fact, I bought the Sunkiss Yellow stamp pad by mistake.  However, I guess I should have used the Sunkiss Yellow in the Watercolor Pencils pack.  Nevertheless, this is a real challenge for me as I have never chosen to use this color before.

I used Simply Said pattern from Wishes, the card confidence program and made this card:

I was hoping to give it a really clean, fresh feeling so I used a lot of white in this card.  The scalloped border was actually inked with Sweet Leaf but the camera may not have picked up good enough:

Thanks to this challenge I have finally used my Sunkiss Yellow stamp pad!

Materials used:
1.  White Daisy cardstock
2. Sky cardstock
3.  Sweet Leaf bulk ribbon
4.  Chocolate Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
5.  Sunkiss Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
