Thinking Sketch Color October

After stamping for 10 years, I have just started participating in Color Challenges and Sketch Challenges. Guess what? I really enjoy doing them! There are some days that they make creating really easy because you know "what" you're doing when you sit down. Other days they can be really challenging, because you have to make sure it fits within the challenge instructions. It is on these days that I'm usually inspired to make two or three other projects as well, as the ideas start spinning off about other things that I could do.

Today's card fits in with two challenges. Color challenge #47 at CAS Colours and Sketches, and DS123 at deconstructing jen.

Here is my creation:

I will be doing a "Make A Difference" series here in the near future, so I've really been focusing on "Thinking of You" type cards. Since the creators of the color combo had Breast Cancer Awareness Month in mind when they created the challenge; I thought this was an appropriate sentiment. 

In addition to the colors listed above, I also used Very Vanilla cardstock. The flowers are from Flower Shop, and punched out using the coordinating Pansy punch. The sentiments is from Sweet Essentials. I ran the Rose Red cardstock through the Big Shot with the Framed Tulips embossing folder. A few strategically placed Basic Pearls, and the card was complete.
