I ended up sticking to the color palette exactly by pasting it right next to my artboard. I initially went to Pinterest for inspiration and liked designs with a patterns on the outside and a crisp outline. I also used a Rifle Paper Co card I had as sketch inspiration. I really liked the idea of pineapples and flowers so I sketched both but the pineapples didn't turn out great so I ended up just sticking with flowers.
As I was playing around with the flowers, I decided to turn them into a pattern. Then I worked on resizing the pattern and finding the right fonts. I think the fonts were the hardest part for me, I haven't taken any classes on font selection but I though the Phosphate font had a tropical/playful/safari look to it.
I ended up using a mock up to style the card that I downloaded from another Skillshare class by Cat Coc.
