Personal Color Challenge & a Sketch!

Hi everyone! Today's challenge is one that I made up for myself.... haha! I went to the Scraptitude Color Website and hit the "surprise me" button and decided whatever came up, I was going to do!

It gave me:

Kiwi Kiss

Soft Sky

Really Rust

Chocolate Chip

Certainly Celery

I didn't manage to get the Certainly Celery on here... oh well!!

This is also for today's Stamps & Smiles sketch!

The sketch had such a large panel, that I knew I had to break out my Bella Blossoms set. I can't believe Stampin' Up didn't give this set much of a chance to succeed. It was in the Fall/Winter 2008 catalog, then it went on the Dormant list for the spring... then it was retired. I think it's a great set, too bad they didn't keep it longer!

There's nothing extravagant about this card. I did stamp the main image 3 times. Then I cut out and layered it. This is how I achieved the various colors. The very top layer is mounted with dimensionals!

Card Details:

Paper: Soft Sky (retired), Chocolate Chip (#102128), Really Rust (#100661), Whisper White (#100730), Bella Rose Designer Paper (retired)
