I'm afraid I wasn't quite up to your challenge today, Karen. Cherry cobbler, more mustard, no problem! Calypso coral?? I DID manage to sneak it in...check out Cocoa's ears and nose! And the glossy heart started out calypso coral before it was stamped with cherry cobbler and sponged in espresso ink.
The sketch is from this week's Sweet 'n Sassy sketch #123. You can find them under member companies in the forum. I used watercolor wonder crayons to color in the sweet image, the first time it's been inked up! The cherry panel is stamped in cherry with the warm flannel bg, the mustard dp (retired SU) was embossed with a CB folder and sponged with espresso. A strip of espresso stamped with the cheesecloth bg in espresso, satin ribbon, baker's twine and a vintage button finish it off.
Thanks for looking! I'm happy to be back after my vacation!

What a sweet card, starting with your darling image and ending with that pretty scalloped eyelet border. I think it is fine to play up 2 colors and just use a wee bit of the third.....no one says they have to be used equally. I think you did a SUPER card for the challenge. Cherry cocoa sounds pretty good!
