Here is my take on the combination of these two challenges....
I changed the sketch around a little to suit my card and Dawn's color challenge worked wonderfully on this thinking of you card. Can't you just feel love blooming?? :)
And because I couldn't stop at just one, I made another card for the color challenge. This one is inspired by all those shabby/hand cut/layered/inked handmade flowers you see all over the papercraft world. The flower stamp is from the Friends til the End set from PTI. I used the smaller of the two flower images, stamped in brown ink and then crumpled and layered the two to make a 3-D flower.
Other fun details are the Martha Stewart punched fence border on the card edge, some white on white embossed cardstock and hand drawn pen work. Super fun! Thanks to Dawn for such an inspiring challenge. Be forewarned...you may see a few more this week inspired by Brown, white, pink, yellow and orange!
