Cheap Talk CI 56 and 2S4Y 30

I am looking forward to being done teaching summer school after this week. Look it's already Wednesday I'm only now checking all my favorite websites and blogs for this weeks challenges. I'm hooked!
So KWerner posted Color Inspiration Challenge #56 which included some beautiful and bright colors. I was so inspired that I made two different cards. Look back later for another post with the same color scheme. Visit her site here to check out this and many other color inspirations... http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/

Next I went to a new favorite blog/website to find a simple yet great layout. 2 Sketches 4 You gives amazing layout ideas. Not only that but the examples you see there are amazing. Very talented stampers! This is Sketch #30. Take a look at their site here. http://www.2sketches4you.blogspot.com/
Here's my take on both the colors and layout put together. I think my problem, if you can call it that, is that when I do color challenges I always feel like I need to use all the given colors in CS. I forget that the stamp or embelishments can use the colors too. Hopefully you don't think this card has too much going on. I think the layout minimalized what could have been a disaster card.

It is definitely not "over worked." AND I love the spiral edging--- on the right. Very unique.
