Sketch Challenge and Color Challenge Combo!

Here's a Sketch & Color challenge combo from SplitCoastStampers last week. Rose Red, Always Artichoke and Basic Black were the given colors and this is the obvious looking sketch. I left the top right empty (except for some paper piercing) to let the eye rest from the remainder of the busy card.

I sometimes like to use symbolism in my cards, or try to create movement or even a scene. I was hoping that this card would look like the whale was bringing happiness and good tidings (PINK FLORAL PAPER & FLOWERS) into an otherwise dismal feeling (BLACK). Not sure if anyone ever looks past the initial 'look' of the card, so I thought I would explain this.

My hubby is headed out of town for a few days, beginning tomorrow, so I have things to do to prepare to face the kids 'ALONE (EEEEEEK!)' for three days! So, I will be back when I can!


Have a SUPER DAY!
