friends till the end!!

Another card for the Verve weekly sketch challenges on SCS using the colors from the ColorQ challenge this week: Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, and White.

I played with Verve's Making  A Statement.... those loopy blooms have just not seen enough love at my house!! Tried something different for the sentiment... inked my kraft mat with raspberry ripple, primrose petals, and lucky limeade... inked the stamp and then stamped onto a MFT flag die-namic. The raspberry ripple kind of took over but, it was definitely muted. Will have to try this again but, in a different way.

 I am so proud of myself... in the last half of 2012, I was so busy (with hubs two surgeries, craziness at work, youngest sick.. you know the drill) that I would get 2 or 3 cards done for the monthly sketch challenges but, never able to get them all done. Well, for 2013 I am 2 for 2.... well, I WILL be 2 for 2. I have 2 done so far this month, working on week 3 so I should be good to go!!

ETA: Really didn't like the way this pic photo'd so I redid it with a colored background...

The color story...

Amber's sketch for week 1....'s Monday... I think there should be some law for a 4 day work week.... the WEs go sooo fast!!
 ETA: would help if I uploaded the correct color story.... geesh!!
