Life is Messy, Friends Help - Color Dare #590 Triple Play

This is my Design Team project for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #590 "Triple Play" wherein you MUST use all 3 colors, white, black and neutrals free. Decided to use the Try a Sketch on Tuesday Challenge #641.  

Because the colors are pretty bold I thought Lagoon and Honey Butter would make a great background, kinda representing sun and sky. For my image chose the kitten with a ball of yarn to bring in the Clover color. 

The two main patterned panels were cut with decorative die frames, the larger one bordered with Lagoon and adhered to card base.  The kittens were stamped with black ink, colored with gray neutrals except for the ball of yarn which was colored with Sketch pens closest to the CTMH Clover cardstock.  

I had a squiggly die cut I placed under the kitten to show the unraveling of the yarn adhered direct on background along with one of the kittens and then adhered the kitten with ribbon with 3D thin foam tape for a little dimension. Picked one of the cute sentiments, bordered with Lagoon and adhered to background on a slant.   

For the inside of the card I used the negative cut of the larger frame bordering along the right-hand side.  

Please hop on over and join us at Color Dare's Color Board #590 and check out the Design Teams inspiration, and then let us see what you create... hope to see you there.

Wonderful use of the sketch and color combo on your card. The patterns work well together and those cute kittens top it off. Thanks for sharing this over at TSOT.
