PPA83 and a New Sketch Challenge

I have discovered a brand new sketch challenge.  As I was checking out the participants in the latest PPA challenge I was lead to the blog of Iwona Palamountain who just this Saturday started a new sketch challenge.  Well, being a sketch challenge junkie, I had to give it a try.  Here are the two challenges I tackled:

These colors are right up my alley.  They are all that are earthy and wonderful.  And when you scroll down the participants in the challenge on the PPA blog, I think you'll agree.  And it's no surprise that I'm a big fan of CAS cards, so it took no time for me to figure out that I would have to participate in the first Sketchbook Saturday Challenge.  Here's what I came up with when I put the two together:

Once I put this card together, I realized how fabulous these colors really are together.  I knew they were wonderful, but I think I under-estimated how wonderful they are!  I used a little bit of the Christmas Cocoa dsp from last year as my background and finished it up with the very pretty flowers from the Fast & Fabulous hostess stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!

Another stunner! I love the clean expanse of that DP and I've never thought of cutting these flowers out - they're beautiful!

Hello Jen, what an awesome CAS design! I love your approach to the sketch - I never seem to pull out a true CAS, and you did it beautifully :)
Thank you for joining me in my first Sketchbook challenge!
