Dijon Baby Shower?

Hey kids, I had some arguments with the computer this morning but I'm finally getting this post up.  My card for today:

The two background panels are silver DSP, which kinda reflected the camera flash a bit so that looks better IRL.  However I think the Delightful Dijon card base is just too dark and that I should have done white...but I didn't want to attempt to peel everything up.

The sketch is from Create with Connie and Mary:

I think I'd like this better with some lighter, brighter colors (like So Saffron instead of Delightful Dijon), but I was having a hack at the Global Design Project color challenge:

I used Dapper Denim as my free choice color.  Still, I think I picked the right stamps for the sketch but the wrong stamps for the color challenge...I have a feeling that color combination could be a lot more fabulous than I made it look.

Oh well, not every card can be your favorite, right?  I'm going to blame this one on lack of sleep.

Cheers, y'all!
