{MTSC91 & CTD109} Just Swingin' by to Say Hi!

Combining a sketch challenge and a color challenge is becoming a habit and that's what I've done again today!   This is the Color Throwdown Challenge colors teamed up with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.   I hope you like it!

The card is a 5" square.  I've stamped the pear pizazz with a retired background stamp and certainly celery ink (because I don't have all the in-color ink pads yet).  The strip of designer paper is from a small Basic Grey "Urban Prairie" pad.  It seemed to have just the perfect color challenge colors, but somewhat muted.  I cut the 3-1/2 circles of tempting turquoise and daffodil delight with the Cricut. 

yes, this is the sketch...just turn your head to the left 90 degrees :)

This sweet little Pure Innocence gal is from My Favorite Things ~ "Start Each Day with Whee"!  I opted to leave off the sentiment for now, but I may add it later.  Another saying that would work is "Swingin' by to Say Hi!"  Can you think of any others?
