PPA#308 & CAS#181 - Combo Sketch and Colour Challenge

Hello and welcome back! Today's card is for two challenges - the sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts and the colour challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.

And here is the card:

The sketch was the easy part, but combining these colors was a little bit of a challenge for me. I used Whisper White Thick Cardstock for the base and added a layer of Elegant Eggplant DSP from my stash of retired paper. The next layer is Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP that has been sponged with Soft Suede ink. I wrapped it with retired Cucumber Crush Dotted Lace Trim and added the Whisper White oval and leaf and flower cut with the Flourish Thinlits.

Notice there is no sentiment on the front of the card. I was not sure what I was going to use it for, but it will be going in the mail tomorrow as a belated anniversary card for a high school friend. The sentiment has been stamped inside. 

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
