I love to use Kraft cs, so this color challenge was right up my alley (Kraft, Orchid Opulence & Sage Shadow with Basic Black as my neutral). I also hadn't used this sketch yet, so I tackled two challenges at once. I'm also going to submit this to Allison's Dotty challenge. Here's a link if you're interested. http://stampinwhenican.blogspot.com/...s11-dotty.html
My card base is Orchid Opulence. I ran some Kraft cs through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot folder and layered it on Basic Black cs for panel 2. Panel 3 is Sage Shadow cs (layered on Basic Black cs) stamped with the dotted stamp in the Boho Backgrounds set in Sage Shadow ink. I dotted the center of each dot with my Basic Black marker. Finally, panel 4 is stamped with the sentiment in Orchid Opulence on Kraft cs and layered on Orchid Opulence and Basic Black cs. There's an Orchid Opulence eyelet in each corner and some black grosgrain knotted through each one for more visual interest.
I think it's a fun card and will make a good thank you card.

Wow...what a great card! I guess I like it since you handled that Orchid Opulence so well and still came out with a great looking card (I, like many, hate this color). It is a very pretty and subtle hand with a hard color challenge...cheers and thanks for playing!
