Don’t you just love it when you have a vision for a project and it turns out better than you thought it would? That’s what happened to me with this project. I started out knowing I wanted to participate in the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.
And then I decided I really wanted to try the color challenge at Color Throwdown, as the inspiration picture is just gorgeous.
But when I pulled out the card stock in these colors, I was a little stumped. So I just picked a stamp set off my shelf and focused on the sketch, and the colors kinda took care of themselves. I ended up liking this combination of colors a lot! What a pleasant suprise! I love it when that happens! That’s one of the reasons I like participating in these challenges — sometimes you end up pleasantly surprised at what you like.
Enjoy your Friday! Thanks for stopping by!

Great card and great color combo!! I just worked on that same sketch challenge but with a different color challenge – too funny!

Amy this is beautiful! I love it! I love the texture and the colours! Super well done! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
Amy, your card is absolutely gorgeous using these colors! I have to admit I was NOT a fan of starfruit but it does work when it’s paired with the right colors. By itself…not so much – lol! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Color Throwdown!
