Heather Summers' Simply Sunday Sketch Challenge #9

This week when Heather posted her Simply Sunday Sketch Challenge she combined it with a colour challenge AND a challenge to use a punch to make a border.

The colour challenge was just that for me - a challenge.  Two of the colours are ones I am sure I have never used.  At first I decided that I would only do the sketch challenge but then I realized that I needed to get out of my comfort zone so I pulled out those colours and started working.

Here is Heather's sketch - you can see how she has used the Curly Label punch to create a border.

This is the colour challenge - use Chocolate Chip, Only Orange and Tempting Turquoise.

I had been making another card using Cheers to You and decided to use it while it was still out.  I went through my paper stash and found the retired Bali Breeze DSP which I thought would go will with the tropical look of the stamps I decided to use.  The colours suggested to coordinate with it include Taken with Teal and Pumpkin Pie - close to the challenge colours but not the same.  I decided to use it anyway.  The print I chose to use is pretty small so I think it worked out pretty well.

I think I met the challenge(s) - what do you think?  I changed the orientation and the placement of the ribbon but I think I stayed pretty close to the layout.  It was a lot of fun and it is great to be challenged to use colours I would not normally reach for.   I used the Round Tab punch to make my scalloped border.
