Here is my card that I started yesterday morning for the color challenge but couldn't finish before I left for work. When I arrived home late yesterday afternoon, uh oh, no access to SCS! I finished my watercoloring and kept trying the site but no luck. I finally left my half finished card and went to bed.
Thank heavens SCS was back this morning. When I checked Roxie's sketch today I decided to use my image from yesterday's cc and combine it with todays sketch. Worked perfectly!
Floral image from Elements of Style inked in Sahara Sand stamped on Very Vanilla and colored using Blush Blossom, Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette, Almost Amethyst, Wisteria Wonder, Certainly Celery and Pear Pizzaz. I mounted that on a Saraha Sand base. Card base is Very Vanilla stamped with the flourish stamp from same set inked in Sahara Sand. Next layer is Wisteria Wonder embossed with Swiss Dot ef and strip of Very Vanilla was punched with a MS border punch and then embossed with the square lattice ef. Sentiment from same set inked in Sahara Sand and mounted on small scalloped oval.
TFL and I look forward to your views and comments!
BTW, I will leave my comments for the teapotters today...no access yesterday :o(
Have a great day!

Glad that it all worked out in the end, Robin. Yesterday was frustrating! Love your use and coloring of the Elements of Style floral spray. The bg scrolls and lace punched band are all in keeping with the card's feminine charm. A beautiful card!

Robin, You did a gorgeous job coloring here! It is so beautiful with this SC.
