Combined Challenges So Much Fun!!

I've combined an Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (Sketch #106) with a new color challenge from Color My Heart Color Dare.
The sites are:

The Color Dare colors are:


I do like these colors. I love light blue and brown together and pink and green together are just meant to be. So I started off with the Glacier (gorgeous color) and chocolate, which I love for other reasons ;-). Since I've started these challenges, I decided I really like our Paper Fundamentals, this is Glacier from the Whimsy pack. The shiny embossed-like surface, well it's shiny and I like shiny. The flip side is a print version in the particular and white in the same design. 

Here's my card:

The stamp is Pretty Petals C1599. It uses the flowers from the Art Philosophy cartridge so you can stamp the image on a already cut flower. Yay!! The stem is straight but I wanted to curve it which is so easy with our acrylic stamps. I used the Olive stamp pad for the stem leaves and greeting. The flower is stamped in Hollyhock ink. The background of the card is kraft paper and the tiny edge around the horizontal rectangle is Chocolate cardstock. There are 2 pieces of white cardstock, one with the flower and greeting which I distressed in Hollyhock ink and the second is distressed in Chocolate ink. The Bakers twine is Olive and white. 

Hope you like it!!
