Priscilla's 411 sketch challenge #156

The layout follows the 411 sketch except I felt that on this card a sentiment did not really work -it will be on the inside of the card.  I used new colors and the new Daffodil Delight Ribbon so my color scheme is Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz.  Elements of Style was stamped on watercolor paper and I used markers and blender pens to do the watercoloring.  So easy when you use watercolor paper.  The roses have a little Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait that I added to make them pop.  It can't be seen but the outside edge of the inner square is inked with Daffodil Delight.  The Pear Pizzazz card stock is embossed using the Finial Press embossing folder (my Vintage Wallpaper folder is on backorder) and then the card is sponged with Certainly Celery.  Thanks to my stamping buddies today who told me that my original color scheme did not work - I really like how this new color scheme works together.  The Pear Pizzazz is beautiful.  Stamping Dimensionals are used for each layer so the card has lots of depth.   Visit the 411 site to see what the operators did with the sketch and all the entries at
