The title of my post is sooo true! My time WAS made easy throwing down color for today's challenge! Two reasons. 1 - I'm the CTD hostess so I chose a palette that I used in two of my MTME paper collections this month; 2 - printing a couple sheets of fun, patterned paper made the rest of my card a BREEZE! Okay, first thing's first...my color selection:
Whaddya think? Pretty, eh? I LOVE this combo!! So, I simply printed two sheets of my Romance collection on one sheet of Georgia Pacific cs, cut to size, distressed ever so slightly, sponged some Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink on the edges, ahered, did a little faux stitching, layered my panels, and added the pretty Zva pearl flourish (that I cut apart to make it fit how I wanted). Don't miss out on the free sheets I added to each of my collections this month! SUCH a great deal :]

I stamped it on my MTME All Tied Up Circle cut file and layered it on my pearl flourish. That's pretty much it, really! Oh, I did use the Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (SSSC102) for my layout:
