Color Throwdown Sketch Creation
Good Morning & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Well, the blizzard has passed & now we're all snowed in...gotta LOVE winter here in IL!!!! If it hit any of you, I hope you're staying safe & warm indoors!!! My kiddos are out of school again today therefore giving me the perfect time to stamp soooo onto my creation for today.
With all that's been going on in my life these past 7 months; I haven't had the chance to play in any of my most fave challenges. The Color Throwdown challenged us to use Early Espresso, So Saffron, Bashful Blue & Crumb Cake......quite the undertaking if you ask me but I jumped at the opportunity! I decided to combine the colors with a sketch challenge as well so I went to the Sketch Saturday Blog & instantly fell in love with the layout for this week. Once I had my layout figured out, everything just fell into place. I originally just had plain layers on my card but after looking at it for a bit; decided that it needed some texture & I must say that I do LOVE it now!!!! Thanks ladies for the AWESOME challenges! I truly enjoyed making this card!!!
Stay tuned for my next post on Saturday....that's right--Etsy Inspiration Day!! We'll have a FAB store to help get your creative juices flowing!! Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,

Jackie this is a great card, love the image (I am seeing a robin :) ) Love the colors and the border, stunning card and great details.
