Serenity Viva La Verve

Good morning! As this is the last full week of May, I'm trying to play catch up with the Viva La Verve weekly sketches. This month was busy with birthdays and end of the school year, so I got a little behind on my challenge cards.

My card uses Amber's Viva La Verve #2 sketch for May. The "twist" was to use any shade of green and blue along with a neutral. I really struggled with this challenge. I decided to choose a patterned paper and let that be my inspiration. This was my 3rd or 4th attempt (it's no wonder why it took me so long, huh?!).

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful week!
