Color Cue #2 Challenge: Sabrina

Not long ago I participated in my first challenge and had so much fun that I decided to try participating in another one. I came across the Color Cue #2 Challenge which you can find here! Teal, Bright Pink, Light Yellow, and White are the colours we are asked to create with for this challenge.
I spent a lot of time searching for the colours and had to go with a darker version of the teal colour for the challenge. I found it a challenge to work with four colours and for some reason felt that I needed to have at leat one paper that tied all the colours together. Well, I didn't have one, but came across the patterned paper I used here and decided to use Copics to add the pink and yellow to it.
The only problem is that by the time I finished the card, I wasn't crazy about the result. You know, it was one of those ideas that looked better in your mind than when completed. I wonder if I had made the embossed circles under the buttons larger, it might have looked better; or maybe change the order/focus of colours. I'm thinking that I'll create another one to enter, but between teaching a couple of classes and Easter between the making of this card and the challenge deadline, I haven't the time to make another card. So, I decided to enter this one anyway. If I have time on Wednesday the 7th, I'll try to enter a better one before the deadline.

I really like what you did with the paper! What a great idea. Matting the buttons with circles is a nice touch as well, I will be trying that one soon.

Thanks for playing along with us!
