...A Color/Sketch Challenge Combo Card

This is my submission for yesterday's Color Challenge and today's Sketch Challenge at SCS. The colors were Pacific Point, Certainly Celery, and Basic Gray. I chose to use the hostess set "Fall Flair" to create this thank you card for a wonderful friend of mine. The flowers and leaves were stamped in Jet Black Staz-On Ink before being watercolored using an Aquapainter, a Pacific Point Classic Ink Pad, and a Certainly Celery Classic Ink Pad. The green squares along the bottom were from the Certainly Celery Designer Series Paper pack, and were punched out using the 1-1/4" Square Punch. The sentiment, from the set "Absolutely Fabulous", was stamped in Jet Black Staz-On Ink onto a scrap piece of Certainly Celery Cardstock. I added several Silver Brads to the layout, then highlighted the flowers and leaves with some Crystal Stickles.

That's it for today! I probably won't be posting anything else this week. I have a club tomorrow night, then I am leaving first thing Friday morning to go on a stamping retreat for the weekend with my dear friends Pam, Janet, Donna, and Ashley (we haven't met yet, but I know I will just love her!). I should have alot of new cards to share with you when I get back, though! Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend....I know I will! Until Monday....
