It's a Sketch Challenge for the Diva's!

Good Wednesday morning! I've got a sketch challenge for you this morning brought to you by Diva's Coffee Break Designs.

Here is my take on the sketch... gotta tell ya, I struggled with this one a bit. The three equal pieces at the top had me twisting and turning, flipping and flopping before I finally settled on leaving them right where they're supposed to be. Although, I did make them slightly askew so they overlap, and torn at the bottom edge.

My favorite parts are the square panel at the bottom and the sentiment. Both are from the new set called For All You Do. The square flower piece is embossed with Close to Cocoa craft ink and clear embossing powder. then colored in with a Certainly Celery marker and Cameo Coral ink with an aqua painter.

The sentiment piece is stamped "Thank You" in Cameo Coral then the dots over it are Certainly Celery.

So do you like this color combination? It is from Splitcoast's Color Combo challenge this week to use Close to Cocoa, Cameo Coral, Blush Blossom, Certainly Celery and Whisper White together.

If you'd like to join the Diva's and play along with our challenge we'd love to have ya! Go visit our blog then be sure to link your creation!
