Practicing Creativity Sketch Challenge and OTWC challenge #15: A Combo

I am here playing along with 2 challenges:  Practicing Creativity Sketch Challenge and the Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge #15.  I wanted to play along with the Practicing Creativity sketches and low and behold the Off the Wall Craftiness challenge this week was color and their sponsor is Practicing Creativity!!  So I had to combine these two challenges! 

My card uses You're Dandy stamp set from Practicing Creativity.....If you know me, I LOVE dandelions!  I look for new images all the time.  I found some really thin cork scraps in my stash and used them here as a mat and border!  I think I will be using me some more cork!! 


Here is Alice's sketch from Courtney's blog that I'm playing along with!




Now the next challenge is from the blog of Kim Wilson called Off the Wall Craftiness and it was to use
teal and tangerine!  These are sooo not my colors but I had to give it a try.....look at her inspiration photo below!!  I see yellows in there too but she clarified that it's "teal and tangerine" on her post and you could add white, cream, or black.  So, to finish my card off, I added some ivory pearls and ivory satin ribbon.
When I look at the inspiration photo, I see beaches and the ocean.......just where I'll be next week as my hubby and I will be off on a trip to Cabo, San Lucas!!  Lots of relaxation!


Why don't you go check out these challenges??  I am having soo much fun with them the past week!!
Have a great weekend!
