A Sketch and a Color Challenge

I was in a stamping mood again last night so I went over to SCS to check out the challenge action they had going on.

What I found was this weeks Color Challenge & the My Favorite Things sketch chellenge!
The colors for the Color Challenge this week are: Sofy Sky, Blue Bayou and Real Red. I knew when I read those colors that they would be beautiful together and they were right up my alley!

Here is my card:
{I used the My Favorite Things set called Let's Go For a Walk, Real Red, Blue Bayou and Soft Sky Cardstock and Real Red, Soft Sky, Going Gray and Close to Cocoa inks to color the image.}
This next card was inspired by the Color Challenge but doesn't use the exact colors on it.
I just bought this Paper Kit by Me & My Big Ideas on sale at Michaels and really wanted to use some of the paper in it. The Kit is called either "Soft Spoken" or "Chester"....I can't figure out which cause it has both of these names on the front of the pack...wierd, huh?

{Stamps: Pun Fun (SU!), Michaels $1; Patterned Paper: Me & My Big Ideas; Cardstock: Soft Sky, Real Red and Whisper White (SU!); Ink: Brilliance Black, Going Gray (SU!), Real Red (SU!); Accessories: Signo White Gel Pen, Marvy Scallop Punch, Ribbon, Blender Pen}

Hope everyone is having a great week doing whatever you are up to!
