I found this sketch challenge on SCS and thought I'd try it!

At first I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it! I wanted to use a color combo I had never used before. So I grabbed my "notebook" that I keep all the different color combos in. And picked out Taken with Teal, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, River Rock and Chocolate Chip. Can't remember where it came from, sorry!

Since I don't use Taken with Teal a lot I started with it as the base. Then I took some River Rock and cut it to 3 1/4" X 5 1/4" and stamped my Polka Dot Background in River Rock onto the River Rock cardstock. I did the same thing with a strip of River Rock cut to 3/8 x 5 1/4. I sponged the edges of both pieces with River Rock ink. I took some Very Vanilla and cut 3 of them to 1 3/8" X 2 5/16 and stamped the single flower from Embrace Life in Chocolate Chip and colored it in with my Real Red marker and adhered it to some Pumpkin Pie that was cut to 1 1/2" X 2 1/2 (3). I then adhered that to the River Rock CS and adhered that to the base. I stamped the "Dare to be Fabulous" sentiment from Fabulous Flowers in Taken with Teal onto Very Vanilla (3 X 1 1/4) and adhered that to a Chocolate Chip piece cut to 3 1/8" X 1 3/8" and adhered the sentiment overlapping the bottom of the flowers and the River Rock CS.

I hope you like it! I love this color combo and sketch! Going to have to try it again! Thanks for stopping by!

*Might help if I actually posted a picture of the card I made, huh?! LOL
