I had so much fun making this card. I had an AWESOME sketch handy, FABULOUS colors to work with, and of course, NO coloring involved at all! How cool is that? A Muse stated that we can definitely use some colors --BUT we have to paper pieced them. I did just that! I paper pieced the tiny bird, the lemon, the glass, and the margarita inside! It took me a while but it was really fun!!
Also, I recommend you all visiting Tracy C's blog and you'll be glad you did. She's celebrating her ONE Year of Sketches and, boy oh boy, she's got an AWESOME prize to give away! THANK YOU ALL (Tracy, Glenda, and A Muse Lounge) for a super fun challenges you came up with.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you like it! :o)

this is so fantastic Armie! You kicked butt on the colour challenge. Love the bird with the maragarita glass - great paper piecing too - would have never thought to paper piece the glass! Terrific double ribbon too. Thanks for playing - happy to have you play anytime!
