Creative Sketches Week 23 Color and a Sneak Peek

Back for another week of Creative Sketches. Wish blogger wasn't being crabby as this is my 4th attempt at this post and as you can see the pictures did their own thing, but at least they are present. This week's challenge was the colors of Baja Breeze, Bashful Blue, Old Olive and Basic Gray. I would have been happy with just 3 of those colors but hey, it's a challenge :0)  I decided to use the soon to be released Paisley Petals DSP and Four Frames Stamp set along with the hostess set Fast and Fabulous and Teeny Tiny Wishes and the Decorative Label punch. Simple layering makes up the base of the card in Baja Breeze, Basic Gray and Bashful Blue. I stamped the flower with Basic Gray ink onto the Bashful Blue background and used the same ink to stamp the label and sentiment. A bit of Old Olive frames the punched image. I chose a flower image from the designer paper and detail cut it, then popped it over the card with dimensionals.
