Lunchtime Challenge....Yes, This is Late, Too!

In one of my recent posts, I mentioned that I had just finished a wedding scrapbook for my niece. In it I used quite a bit of Sahara Sand CS, and have really fallen in love with this color. It's neutral, but seems to take on a different hue as you change the colors you pair it with.
Well, as you may have guessed, Sahara Sand has been used in this card.....I used it for the base. Here I matched it up with Mellow Moss and the new In Color, Rich Razzleberry. To be honest, I wasn't really sure how I felt about this new In Color, but I really love this color combo.
This is another of MaryJo's sketches. I think she actually created this sketch for a long know, a business envelope sized card. But, I made it into a regular card size and it works really well. You can see MJ's sketch here. Here, I've featured the beautiful Hostess Level 3 set, Kind & Caring Thoughts. Although, it cannot be purchased, it can easily be earned for FREE. (Just contact me to find out how!)
The flower on this card is one stamp, but I achieved this look by coloring just the flower with the Rose Red marker and the stem with my Always Artichoke marker. Before stamping, I carefully edged the petals of the flower in the Rich Razzleberry ink pad and then stamped. After this, I glittered the petals with the 2-Way Glue Pen (just can't live with out it!) and of course, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. SU now carries markers in each of the new In of these days, I really must add them to my collection!
