Color Throwdown #130 and Pals Paper Arts #82....

Seems l'm on a roll this morning, 2 posts and it's still morning.......
I'm really enjoying combining challenges, l like the idea of using a colour, a sketch and a technique challenge when making cards, it gives me Inspiration and boundaries and makes me think outside the square.
So this card was made using 2 challenges the first was Color throwdown and the second was Pals Paper Arts  which was "CAS-Elements of Style-Scallops"

Time well spent (retired) stamp set.
Tangerine tango-Pretty in pink and So saffron DSP, White C/stock.
Tangerine tango-Pretty in pink-So saffron and Choc chip Markers.
Aqua painter-Dazzling diamonds-2-way glue pen.
So saffron grosgrain ribbon and Scallop border punch (non-SU).

Enjoy your weekend,
