Card For a Few Challenges

Hi there!  I finally got my act together and made a card!  I got so behind while traveling this week, but I finally do have a card to share for a few challenges that I like to do.  First, it is for Challenge #77 on Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge blog.  Dorcas is the hostess this week and the theme was "how does your garden grow?".  It is also for this week's Sketch Challenge (SC0406) on The Outlawz site. 

Here is the sketch:

Finally, my card is for Kathy's Color Throw Down on the new site, Lily Pad Cards

Here are the colors for the challenge:

Here is my card for the challenges:

I used SU cardstock in all the Throw Down Colors (Brilliant Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Kiwi Kiss, Yo-Yo Yellow and Only Orange.  Those of you who know me know these brights are WAY outside my comfort zone, but I gave it a go!  The cute Mo's image is called Sprout.  She was originally in the digi package that was part of the Help For Katie fund-raising efforts.  You can read about ongoing efforts to help Katie here.  The image is available at Mo's Digital Pencil.  I colored her with Copics.   The sentiment is from the Gina K. Designs set, Spring Mix.  I used Spellbinders Labels Four (large and small) for the sentiment tag. The white panel is embossed with the Cuttlebug folder, Brickyard.  Photo corners with orange button brads finished my simple design.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back late tonight for the Center Stage Spotlight Blog Hop!  I hope to see you then!
