Am I in a color rut??

I seem to be reaching for pink and green more often than not lately. See evidence here, here, here, here, here, and here! I don't even really like pink, but it's been my "go to" color lately. It seems to pair well with every other color I grab and that makes it easier to be creative.This card is another based on CPS' sketch #24. I used my Papertrey green thumb set, and one stamp from SU!'s Think Happy Thoughts set. PP is from Chatterbox, velvet ribbon from MM, diamond EP from Joann, Ink is Versamagic chalk, and Ranger archival.

SIDE NOTE: Our family is going on vacation tomorrow, so I don't know if I'll be able to post until I return. We'll see how much access I have to a computer. *wink*

I still say it's really pretty. And of course you will have access to a computer if you need one. Between mine and E's house, we have 6 computers. Plus the two at Pap's and the 1 at Aunt Martha's. Although, finding the time to use it...that's the big question! So many things to do! And the Fair will still be here on Saturday, too.

Hey - when it works, why change? ;) This card looks great! I haven't had such pretty results with my Papertrey flower pot. I always try to mask it when I stamp on the flowers. I like how you just cut out the pot and added dimension. Really cute! The little 'friendship' circle looks cute too with the flower stamped in the middle! Your projects are always so perfect!

Hey you have been using a lot of those colors lately but...its summer, the colors are bright and cheerful, they're a little "trendy"...NO! I am NOT calling you trendy!! I promise!! But if you look around, this is a common color combo right now and it looks great, together. Your cards are lovely. Do what feels good.
