Bloggers Challenge-Color Challenge

This week for our Bloggers Challenge, we are challenged to use Taken with Teal, Crushed Curry and Real Red together-now that was a challenge- I like the end result- what do you think?

I started with a FREE digital image-available this week at Firecracker Designs by Pamela-this is the LINK (free until next Saturday), and used the sketch challenge Pamela has on her blog with the freebie.  I colored it with Copic markers that best matched the SU cardstock colors with added green for the grass and gray for the rocks.  (I will edit and add the colors tomorrow night).  The grass is stamped with the little haystack stamp in the Pitchin In set by FCD in Old Olive and Kiwi Kiss. I used Sanded coordinations on a piece of white core CS that matched the Teal beautifully, added a sentiment, flowers-sponged with Curry with red brads for the centers. The butterfly has a touch of Atyou Spica pen by Copic- I love the shimmer!
I am going to mail this card to my Mother- she is a wonderful gardener and I always think of her when I see beautiful gardens or floral images.
