Sketched Flowers

IHi Everyone.  happy Tuesday.

I have a quick post for you tonight.  I made a card for not 1.... not 2.... but.... 3 challenges!   A sketch, a theme and a color!

Here are the challenges

Color - Just Add Ink

Sketch: CasethisSketch


Theme - Time Out

I haven't bought one of the Simon Says Stamp card kits for a while, but I totally fell in love with the one containing the Sketched Flowers set.  You can buy this as a stand-alone stamp set.  I loved the idea of being able to color this and take segments of the large image.

When I saw the color challenge across at JAI - I knew they would be perfect for this new stamp set and, then, when I saw the sketch with the three circles across at CaseThisSketch - I knew that the segment of the stamp with the three circles was perfect for the sketch.

Then... how could I resist the Theme challenge at Time Out.  Friendship and Breast Cancer Awareness.  

I began by stamping the segment that had the three circles in the approximate position they are in the sketch and then I went to town with my Copic marker equivalents of the SU colors.  I absolutely LOVE these colors together.

Here's a closeup of the coloring:

The coloring was really simple for me - just a couple of shades of each color.  To finish the card, I added a sentiment and some sequins.

Here's my card:

I'll be back later in the week with another card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
