CTD#51, SCS SC237

Here's a card I made to meet 2 challenges today. The first is the Color Throwdown #51 to use Lavender Lace, Garden Green, and So Saffron found here. The second is the SCS sketch challenge #237 found here. The image was stamped and sent to me by Heidi, so I don't know who the mfr is. I colored the image with Tombows and a wet paint brush. I ran the lavender piece through my Big Kick with a cuttlebug embossing folder. The sentiment was computer generated and cut with the word window punch. The dsp and cardstocks are SU, and so is the saffron ribbon. I added a small flower and gemstone for an accent. There are days when I feel exactly like this little guy, but eventually things seem to get better :)
Have a great Wednesday and thanks for visiting a while today!
