A Sketch, Color Challenge and more

Good Morning Everyone,
Hope your day is starting off well. I spent the morning working on a challenge card. I received this great new stamp from Wiff Of Joy and could not wait to try it out. I used the sketch from Paper Take Weekly Tuesday Challenge and the color scheme from Color Throwdown #100. The Theme is from The ABC Challenge which is "Y"...You and Me. I thought my new stamp fit this theme perfectly...the sweet little Wee and her lamb. So cute.

The image was watercolored with the Throwdown colors:

Baja Breeze

Real Real

Regal Rose

Certainly Celery

I also used these same colors of CS. All from Stampin' Up. The accents used were: Cuttlebug small embossing folder Hearts (2x2) Which qualifies the card for the 2x2 Challenge on the Cuttlebug Spot Blog. I also added some stamped stars (stamp from SU) that I cut out. The stars theme is from the Critter Challenge Blog #21. Well, I really challenged myself to see how many elements I could incorporate into the card. It was fun! Well, I should probably spend some time with my significant other now. He is practicing his electric guitar. Yes it is loud, but he does have it turned down. Oh, sounds as if he is finished . I think I"ll go and make some coffee. Have a great day friends.
