Since I didn't have a chance to do the Color Challenge yesterday, I'm combining it with the Sketch Challenge today. When I started out, I wasn't sure I would be able to work these colors but I found one piece of a sand card stock which is a dead ringer for the sahara sand.
I white heat embossed the flowers & greeting on the sand c/s. On the flowers, I used Prismacolor pencils to add the other 2 colors...wasabi & pink. For the sketch, I turned the square to better fit & the die cut border serves as my long horizontal panel.
After I die cut the sand card stock, I colored a narrow strip w/ a pink pencil & attached it behind the cut out to act as the ribbon element on the sketch. The flowers were fussy cut & attached on my square/diamond shape. I also used the pink pencil around the border of the sand layer & added a fussy cut butterfly.
