Courage..

Good morning! It's Thursday..one step closer to Friday. :)

Today's card uses two challenges. The first is this week's Color Throwdown. Here are the colors:




And the second is this week's Card Patterns sketch, seen here:




Once again, i'm using that cool green patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl pack...




I really like the sentiment on this card. For me, the sentiment sells the card. If I find great sentiments, I can build a card to love around it. Images are great, but sentiments are my thing. ;)

Well, that's all from me. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great Thursday! Laters..
