Just Us Girls Week 8 Color & 2S4U Kazan's Sketch 40 Challenges

Tonight I had a bit of time to play, so I'm posting a combination of 2 challenges: JUGs Week 8 Color Challenge and 2 Sketches 4 U (Kazan's Sketch 40) Challenge, pictured above. When I first saw these colors (SU's Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust & Bashful Blue) used here I was skeptical, but just look at their fabulous DT samples -- awesome! I used the exact SU colors, though since it's after 6 PM & dark, my blue looks a bit grayer than it really is. What a fun sketch & fabulous color combo! The little corner detail are pieces die cut from the Spellbinder's Lattice Pendant for my original idea for this card -- never throw anything away!!!
Paper: All SU CS
Stamp: Technique Tuesday's Whirly Gigs
Ink: PTI's True Black Palette
Embellishments: Michaels Gems (colored w/Copics: YR07 & B21
Tools: Paper Shapers Scalloped Punches & Spellbinder's Wizard & Lattice Pendant Die
