MMSC21 and a color challenge

Hello everyone! Today I made a card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 21 and also for the Color Challenge on SCS: to use Sage Shadow, Pretty in Pink, Going Gray. I started off with this Madeline Designer Paper from K&Co, matted that with Pretty in Pink and Sage Shadow according to the sketch. For the matting of the image I added a going gray mat.

The image is from Sarah Kay and I stamped it with Archival Jet Black onto Watercolor paper and water colored with SU! Markers except for the gray areas, which I had to do with Prisma Pencils as I do not have gray markers.

I had fun with this relatively easy sketch! Used a Martha Stewart punch for the boughs and the bow easy for the bow which is SU! Pretty in Pink. A little bling and some stickles on her hair bow and done.

Thanks for looking!

Don't forget to stop here and also the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog on Thursday, Oct. 1! We're going to have a blog hop to go along with the new releases and you won't want to miss it! There will be prizes!!! See you then!!!
