My Color Challenge Submission

Did I say I was going to post this on Monday?  OOOPS!  BUT I did get my kids all registered for school.  Well, the 4 school aged ones.  I will have a Kindergartener, a 1st, 3rd, and 11th grader.  CRAZY!!!  Can someone tell me why we have to fill out the same information 10 times?  I hardly new my own name by the time I was done filling all 4 packs out!  Good luck to whoever has to read it!  My handwriting was started to suffer as well.

I made a super simple card with a super simple gift box.

I had to call my oldest to tell me what my paper said before I could decide what to make with it, and I had to use it, the colors match too well not to.  He served a 2 year mission for our church in West Indies and speaks French.  I could listen to him talk all day.  Of course, I wouldn't understand a thing!  Anyway, the phrases on my DCWV paper translates into "That's Life", and "The Joy of Living".  I think the Papertrey Ink sentiment goes perfectly!  And who doesn't enjoy life with a little box of chocolate!

Thank you Jessica, again, for hosting this week's challenge.  It's a great one and I will be using these colors together again.
