Just Add Ink #411..."Sketch"~ Color Dare #295 - Glacier, Nutmeg and New England Ivy, Sizzix Flowers

 I made this card this evening for another NEW to me challenge.  YAY!!  Honestly I think I love to find new challenges because I feel like people might get tired of seeing me in their blog contests.    It's almost like a job to me since I can't work outside the home anymore.  I work on cards.   It's really fun.  So I'm going to submit my card for the first time to the challenge at: 
I'm also going to submit it to the challenge at: 
Now I didn't have these exact color names, but I tried to match them as closely as possible.   However, I noticed when I was watercoloring in the butterfly wings the green faded quite a bit, or perhaps just washed out.  However I think the leaves show the green off much better.   I added clear wink of stella glitter all over the petals and wings to give it some sparkle, and I added one little piece of embellishment to the upper righthand corner.  I stuck it on with glossy accents and then filled up the leaves with it too.  I think it finishes the card off nicely.  
The stamp set featured in today's card is: 
Sizzix Flowers #4

Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
