Color/Sketch Combo

Today's SCS color challenge seemed like the perfect color combo for this cute little Lizzie Anne Designs single!  This layout is this week's LAD sketch challenge, hosted by Joslyn

The image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored with Copics, then cut and embossed with a nestabilities rectangle.  The sentiment was inked with water-based markers in three colors directly to the rubber, then cut and embossed with a nesties tag die.

For the background, I used an impressabilities plate to emboss a pretty floral pattern...a bit of sponging through the template accentuates the design.  The green strip is card stock punched with a dainty scallop, edged with some twill ribbon.  I kept the embellishments super simple, echoing the sunflower from the design with a sunflower made from flower punches and a brown button.

This was a fast, fun design!
