PPA 105- Color challenge

My hubby and I love to watch HGTV's design star.  Sometimes I feel like PPA is my "design star".  Saige took an extra long nap yesterday (and by extra long I mean 2 1/2 hours- her normal is only 40 minutes!) so I was able to sit down and pull together a quick card.  The colors are all pretty and bright on their own so I knew I needed to add in a good neutral.  I wanted to play around with my new embossing folder from the summer mini.  I embossed it with the folder and then swiped versamark over the raised part and sprinkled with white embossing powder.  I had to use a small paint brush to get lots of excess powder off so I don't think we'll be making this at an upcoming card club :).  I kept the card really simple so it would highlight the embossed part.  I couldn't decide on a sentiment so I left it blank.  I think the new Occasions Alphabet will fit perfectly in the space on the bottom left and I'll just stamp it with whatever sentiment I need at the time.  Super easy!
That daffodil delight is quite bright.  Here's my little summer sunshine...
