Thank You Card for Two Challenges

I'm back to stamping after an emotional week!

My father-in-law passed away and we had his wake and funeral last week. Or celebration of "a wonderful life" as he would have called it. A great tribute to a great man!
We were supposed to have been in Florida but actually did make it down there for a few days after the funeral. It was beautiful weather, relaxing and we toasted on the beach to him!

Back yesterday to snow-enough already, it's April.

Needless to say we need many thank you cards for the generosity of friends and family!

This thank you is for a sketch and a color challenge.

First, the Freshly Made Sketch#383 here.

And the colors for The Paper Players#437 here.
The colors are Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue and Calypso Coral.
