Get Well Soon Ruffles

I decided to have a little play time in the craft room today because the next few days are once again crazy busy around here.
This card uses an adorable Stampavie stamp ~ I just love that puppy!  I thought that this image would look really cute with the papers I decided to use and, quite honestly, I really do like how it turned out.
Now that I'm looking at this on the screen, I'm not sure why the brads look so dark since they are practically the same color as the paper, if not a bit lighter.....but then again, taking pictures at night will do that I guess.

I have always meant to play along with The Play Date Cafe Color Challenge but never got around to it, until today that is, so I am entering their challenge for the very first time.
I am also entering the following challenges:
Midnight Madness ~ Sketch (another challenge I always intend to do, but never quite get to)
Paper Sundaes ~ Use your favorite challenge of the year ~ Challenge #44 ~ Sundae Toppings Bar ~ use at least two of the following:  Punches, Ribbon, Embossing, the Color Blue ~ 3 out of 4, not too bad (since the DP is a bit textured I decided to forgo the embossing
Stamp Something ~ Anything Goes 
Stampin for the Weekend ~ "New and Blue" (Stamp and DP) 
All Sorts - Blue & Brown 
Totally Gorgeous ~ Cuddly 
One Stitch at a Time ~ New (Stamp and DP) 
Pile It On ~ Anything Goes 
Wild Orchid - "Let's Get Sentimental" - include a sentiment

Wow, that was hard to narrow it down to 10 challenges....I had to take at least that many off my list....

Have a great day and thanks for visiting :)
