2 great challenges

I have been following link after link after link looking for some inspiration. Been up since 4 AM so got in lots of reading before church. Came across 2 blogs with challenges and since one was a color challenge and one was a sketch challenge I decided to use both ideas on one card. The COLOR Challenge you will find at The Play Date Cafe
We were to use this picture and colors for our inspiration. Not my usual colors so this was a big challenge.



Next came the SKETCH challenge found at Pals Paper Arts.



And here is my card



This was fun and I intend to keep up with these challenge blogs every week. It's always helpful to be told what colors to get out or given a theme to work with or even given the layout when the mind just can't figure out what to do.
