Sketch and Color Challenge!

Finding a sketch challenge AND a color challenge to combine was a great way to find some direction on this Thank You card that I wanted to make. I just had to add creativity to HOW I interpreted it.

I used a patterned stamp on the vertical shapes, then smudged the edges by rubbing my stamp pad on them. I layered a couple of stamp images in the square and set the flower on foam tape. Instead of a bow I tied a length of ribbon in one knot onto the ribbon band that is wrapped around the blue card stock.

I based my color choices on the Colour Q challenge. Orange, lime, blue, and grey are not colors I normal grab for to put together. It was fun to work with new colors and I am very happy with how the colors look together!
