Heat Wave

Hi all,
I cannot believe a week has gone by since I've posted anything...where does the time go? Right now in the Chicago area, we are all trying to stay cool. We are in the middle of a heat advisory. Meteorologists are saying we could possibly reach a heat index of 116 degrees by Thursday! Now that's a record!
 My lawn looks like straw...and I've been watering when I can. The town I live in has water restrictions. If your address is an even number, then you can only water on even days. And the same for odd - if your address is an odd number, you can water on odd number days.
There are a couple of card challenges that I made a card for. Card Patterns Sketch 124 and CR84FN34.

The colors were not a problem for me -I love shades of pink with a splash of yellow. I was a bit thrown by the shape of the card. I'm use to the standard size card. Well, here is my take -

I think my card is too long. But again, this is why they call them challenges!
Enjoy the rest of the week and stay cool!
