Challenging...

I was in the mood to be challenged. So, I took on two challenges with the same card.

First up,
Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #55.

I thought the colors were such an unusual combination that just seemed to work together when I began playing with them. I was happily surprised at how well the colors played together...it was like 4 3-year olds playing peacefully with the same toy without any fighting...possibly a bad analogy, but you get what I mean.

Anyway...next up,
Inkspirations Sketch Challenge # 9.

I thought the sketch was quite unique. Granted creating the tag look by hand was a bit tricky and as you can see in my final product...not quite straight...but I think that just adds to the mystique. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

All in all, I like the way my card turned out. You be the judge...what do you think?
