Double Wammy!

Sketch Challenges are never quite the same.  Sometimes they are just what you need for the card and sometimes you cannot help  adding to them.  Today's card is a two for.  I liked the sketch from Freshly Made sketches but couldn't find a color combo that I wanted to use.  So I looked for a color challenge and found one at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

And I came up with:

I used Baked Brown Sugar for the card base, I cut the card stock at 4 1/4 and scored it at 5 1/2 and them flipped it to open from the side.  The layer is three papers stacked together.  The first is an old Designer Series Paper  DSP,  Letters to Santa, the second is from last years Holiday Catalog paper stack and the small strip is some Gumball Green card stock. I forgot the green in the paper stack was Lucky Limeaid not gumball Green, but it turned out ok.  I used the faint lines in the DSP to stamp the sentiment from Teeny Tiny wishes and added some pearls for bling.

Thanks for looking!
