Hello card made using the Simple cards cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a really cute card made using the Simple cards cartridge. I seriously could make every card on this cartridge. Now of coarse I would jazz them up 'Melanie style ;-)', but these cards are so much fun!

When I was making this card I realized that aqua is my new favorite color. I just love using it in projects! Also, corral pinks are really starting to grow on me. I used to feel like they were too orangey, but now I think they are pretty. I'm evolving I guess.

I used Close To My Heart paper from last years Scrapbooking Month promotion.
The sentiment is from the Patterned Pennants stamp set.
