Color Throw Down and a Sketch

Hi again Stampers!

Today's card is another combo of challenges and boy was this one a challenge! For some reason my creativity is still asleep because I had a hard time getting this card to come together!

I combined the Color Throw Down for the week with Kerin's sketch over at Stamps, Paper, Glitter

I started with a WW card base and added a panel of Bordering Blue stamped in the same color with one of the flowers from the Eastern Blooms stamp set. I stamped the other flowers from the Eastern Blooms set in Elegant Eggplant, Barely Banana, and Bordering Blue randomly on WW and matted it with a panel of Barely Banana.
Next I added a strip of Elegant Eggplant and a smaller strip of Barely Banana across my card. My sentiment comes from the Cute and Curly stamp set, stamped in Elegant Eggplant and punched with the Label Punch. I added a Barely Banana flower punched with my Boho Blossoms punch and a little Metal Sticker from Joann's $1 spot to finish it off.

I hope you are having a terrific weekend! Come back tomorrow when I post the "Last Chance List" of retiring stamp sets and accessories from the Spring/Summer 2009 Catalog. These items go FAST so if there's an In Color Accessory or stamp pad you've been wanting you might want to do it right away!
