freshly made sketches #285 and color throwdown #440

hello hello & happy monday!!
here today with another challenge card -
I designed a card based on the following challenges:

And here is my card:

So... if you know my card making style you would know what a challenge this card was for me!! lol
I am not much of a stamper. I am not very good at CAS cards. My interpretation of sketches is usually very literal. That being said, I think I was successful in really stepping outside of my comfort zone with this card!

I watercolored the yellow swatch on the background panel. The flowers and leaves were each stamped with the same color ink - first with a watered down distress ink, then over the top with the same color distress ink, but not watered down... I'm sure that's nothing new, but it was a new to me technique ;)
The points of the leaves reminded me of the points on the star in the sketch... yep, I said I interpreted sketches literally, didn't I?! lol

I really enjoyed both the color challenge (I don't usually use purple) and the sketch challenge!!

thanks for stopping by!
