Color and Throwdown a Sketch!

Happy Wednesday! I went to a different color challenge blog today...the Color Throwdown, this week featuring pear pizazz, kraft (crumb cake) and blushing bride. I have peeked at it frequently, but this is the first time I participated. I combined it with the Sketch Challenge on splitcoaststampers. I pulled out my new SU set, "Bliss" which is available through Sale-a-Bration. Just order $50 in Stampin' Up product from January 25 - March 31, and you can choose this set, or one of many other sets or special SAB accessories.

The base is crumb cake, and I used pear and blushing bride pattern paper from the Hostess pack. I love the cotton twill ribbon, just had to choose which color to use! I stamped two of the images from Bliss on very vanilla card stock, and another one in crumb cake to leave a watermark on one side. My usual sentiment set up fit perfectly with this sketch. Finally, I added some pearls for a final feminine touch.

Hope you like it...I do!
