Color Throwdown & a Sketch 2

Happy Wednesday!
It's Color Throwdown time peeps & even though the colors weren't a hard choice....I had a hard time using the green galore with the chocolate chip & pink passion! I decided to use one of my retiring sets Happy Heart Day---love that elephant!---and colored a couple of the hearts with my green galore marker. I think it came out OK!!

My creation is also using the sketch from the Sketch & Stash blog. My stash items are the flowers which I've been hoarding since FOREVAH!! I received them from a very good cyber friend of mine from Florida---wasn't that sweet of her?!! I also used some of my Kaiser Pearls to finish my card off. I really *heart* those things and tend to not use them so I appreciate the push ladies!!

I'm going to work on my card for a sketch challenge I want to enter.....I really need to concentrate since you're not allowed to combine any other challenges with it. Talk about brain power LOL!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!!!
TTFN,
Hugs,

Supplies:
Happy Heart Day ss; Pink Passion, Whisper White & Chocolate Chip cs; Basic Brown ink; SU! DSP; Eyelet Border Punch; Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon; SU! Markers; Clear Rhinestone Brads; White Gelly Roll Pen; Giga Scallop Circle & Mega Circle Punches; Kaiser Pearls; Prima Flowers

  6. Yeah, that green galore kills me too. But this is beautiful. You ALWAYS find a way to make it beautiful!!!!

    I did NOT spend too much on my pre-order and I'm sooooo glad they're coming out with in-color markers. I've been emailing them about that since I joined! I'm holding out until I get the new catty to make me broke - LOL.

    Hugs,
