{Friends Cherish Dreams} Challenge Submission

So, my favorite thing about challenges is that you often end up using stuff you haven't touched in ages or that you normally wouldn't use. For instance, the play date cafe had a color combo featuring this peachy color and I just normally wouldn't use it. I had this sheet with the swirls in an Anna Griffin pad that I have had for {a little less than forever.} But I think it is just absolutely stunning. With the peachy color, PDCC had us using a brick red with white. Before I got started I scoured the challenge blogs for a sketch and decided to go with the CPS Sketch #178 for this one. Here is the sketch and the PDCC color scheme and inspiration:
