Tilda with Hawaii Flower "Crayola" card

Good morning everyone!! Well, my dad has been admitted to the hospital due to pneumonia. This is the 2nd time he got pneumonia within 3 months. Anyhow, although he still isn't discharged yet, he is much better now and maybe he might get to go back to his nursing home soon... phew!

I didn't really get too much time to make cards. Therefore, today I am sharing with you a card I made a while ago, but didn't get a chance to post it. I colored this card with Prismacolor Pencils and wrote down the number of the colors I used, but I couldn't find that piece of paper. I thought maybe I can just post this card and whenever I found the paper so I can list the colors on my post, but with no success. Sorry :o(

When I made this card, my original plan was to make a card with Mardi Gras colors. So I thought purple, green & bright yellow/gold would be my base colors. After I put the whole color combo together on my card, it turned out to be a "Crayola" commercial, lol. You can tell why just by looking at the card. I just couldn't stop laughing at this. Oh well, after all, it's a finished card and the most wonderful thing is... it's a Tilda card. This card is made with the Tilda with Hawaii Flower from Magnolia-licious.

I am also using this card for the following challenges:
Card Cupids - Ribbon
Make it Colorful Challenge #20 - purple & yellow
Just Magnolia Week 109 - Friends
Stamp with Fun Challenge #113 - In the Garden
Make It Monday #39 - Anything Goes
Dream Valley Challenge #8 - Stamp Something
CES Challenge #38 - Embossing
Divas by Design Challenge #2 - One for the girls
Truly Scrumptious Challenge #57 - Anything Goes

Here is my finished card
