Sketch Challenge

I can't believe I did three SCS challenges this week! I always seem to fade midweek. Guess it helps being off work - that and Christmas is over!
Super fun sketch! I will definitely be using this one again in the future. I stamped the tulips from Both Way Blossoms in chocolate chip on so saffron. The flowers were watercolored, then I sponged so saffron all over - you need to see it in real life to see what that did, just really richened up the color. Close to cocoa was sponged around the edges and Weathered was stamped in Creamy caramel. I adore backgrounds, whether those stamps from SU that are fantabulous, or background paper, I feel my cards are incomplete if anything is left plain. Hardware and ribbon are another passion of mine, so I ended up using both.
Check out the challenges on Splitcoast - the ladies who come up with them everyday do a super fantastic job. They are the best!!

I love this card! Beautiful job, Linda! I'm with you about backgrounds; I've been checking some of my previous work and if there is nothing on the background, I don't like it anymore. All I have to do is try and pull the card apart and stamp the background or use a paper and wala! a whole different card! This is a great card layout.

I was doing a quick scan of SC104 today and saw was so pretty! If I didn't have my crazy 13 month old scrambling aroung my ankles, I might have actually commented on SCS...great job!
