Splitcoaststamper Sketch Challenge Greeting Card

I've finally recovered from the wedding festivities over the weekend.  The wedding went wonderfully with no hiccups at all.  It was a beautiful, touching, and precious celebration on many levels and I feel so honored to have been able to participate in the beginning of my sister and her new husband's life.

So, I'm delayed in posting as I told you I'd be back on Sunday, so I apologize for my tardiness. 

Today I bring you a card that I created for two challenges over at Splitcoaststampers (SCS).  A Clean and Simple Challenge and a Color Challenge.

 The CAS138 challenge was to use a sketch provided.  I followed that pretty well, but I didn't use such a decorated edge and opted instead to just round my corners on the right side of the paper.
 The Color Combination challenge was to use Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango, and More Mustard.  I didn't use the Soft Suede, and instead substituted Chocolate Chip because it coordinated with my pattern paper choices.
 I used my Cricut to cut out the flower, and pulled one of the more subtle colors from the pattern paper for my coordinating button.
 I used a Hero Arts stamp for the sentiment and used a 1" circle punch to cut it out.
Clean and Simple is about all I really can say about this card...it isn't one of my favorites...I also promise to try to get some better pictures for my future posts.  The weather is getting to really be fall here in Minnesota, and it just isn't staying dark as long.  I think that means I need to stamp faster or plan further out!  :o)

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Stamping!
