A color and a sketch challenge!

Well, you would think this card wouldnt have taken me too long to do, since the colors and the layout were all done for me, but noooo, not me! I still take forever fiddling with a card, lol! I made this for the color challenge at SCS today (baja breeze, pacific point, and garden green) and for Jen del Muro's sketch challenge from Saturday. I have been wanting to participate in her sketches for the longest and this is my first time to do so, and I do so love sketch challenges! Ok, on to the card:



I tried a bit of watercoloring on this card. I used the lids of the above listed inks. Wasnt a whole lot of coloring on this image, and will try it again. I just was playing today, lol. I also got the idea for a tailored bow from Joanne B....she has issued a challenge in the Gina K forum but this isnt my card for that, lol. I have another idea for that one.

We are under an ice storm warning tonight. The worst of it seems to be up north of us right now and I am hoping it STAYS there, lol! But if I do happen to disappear, it would be because we lost power...I soo hope not. Back in 2000, we had that bad ice storm and was without electric for SEVEN days...it was HORRIBLE!! But got candles, hurrican lamps and some canned stuff today just in case. What usually happens, if they are predicting it for us, we dont get it, lol! Anyways, heres hoping for the best!

Thanks for stopping in and hope you are having a wonderful week!

Fantastic card Cat, perfect in every way. Good luck with the weather we too are under warning but us for a foot of snow. I think I prefer the snow over the ice any day.
