Card Patterns #208 (and more)

OK, I'm back faster than I thought!  This is my second post today as I am trying to catch up on my favorite challenges before I have to travel this weekend.  This time I have a card I made for this week's sketch  challenge (#108) on the Card Patterns Sketch blog.

Here is the great sketch we had to work with:

My card is also for the Greeting Card Challenge (GC032711) on The Outlawz site which was to use our favorite colors, favorite image or favorite sentiment on our card.  I used my favorite colors, blue and green.  The Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC316) this week also featured my fave blue and green combo - Marina Mist, Baja Breeze and Certainly Celery.

Here is my card for the challenges:

I flipped the sketch to vertical for my card.  I started with a card base of SU Marina Mist and layered with Certainly Celery.  The patterned paper with all three challenge colors is from Prima's Annalee 6x6 pad.  I stamped the flowers from the Gina K. Designs Buds and Vases set with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White Iridescent and colored with Copic markers.  I highlighted the flowers with a White Gel Pen.  The sentiment is from the GKD set, Arranged With Love. It was cut with a Spellbinders Labels Eleven die and airbrushed with BG000 while still in the die.  I also lightly airbrushed the white Kaiser flowers and a white doily from my stash.  I popped up the flowers and sentiment, added the flowers and that was it.

Thanks for coming by again today!  I appreciate your visits every time!
