Thinking of You

So I thought, I think I'll have just enough time this morning to make a card using Jacque's sketch and get it posted by the challenge deadline.  I managed to get 4 challenges combined on this one card, and I am definitely feeling that my mojo is returning!  Whew!  It helps that these 4 challenges just happened to combine some of my favorite things:  colors, flowers, a great sketch, and some favorite papers.  :)

Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar #157:  Use Jacque's sketch (I loved this sketch!)
Cute Card Thursday #218:  Use pink and green (one of my favorite color combos!)
Basic Grey Challenge #68:  Anything Goes (BG is one of my favorite papers!  I used papers from the "Sultry" collection, an oldie but a goodie.)
The Shabby Tea Room #115:  "Garden Party" (love the roses in the photo!)

Let's start with a look at the sketch and inspiration photo:

TSTR's challenge was to use the colors of the photo (pink, white, green, sky blue, and brown) along with a dimensional flower.

Here's my card.  The sky blue is a little hard to see, but I went around the edges of my colored image with the lightest blue marker I have to give it a soft edge effect.

Here's an enlarged view, and I think the light blue shows up just a little better.

Stamps:  image from Magnolia, sentiment from SU! "You are Loved"
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black
Papers:  White, dps from Basic Grey "Sultry"
Other:  Recollections large flower and Prima roses, MS leaf punches, Copic markers

Thanks for stopping by!
