AYSIChallenge122Today I am playing along with 2 challenges…a sketch challenge from  As You See It and a color challenge from the Fab Friday blog.  The color challenge called for pink and reds together…not my favorite combination but I love how my card turned out.  I stamped flowers in Real Red ink on both Watermelon Wonder and Blushing Bride cardstock and then punched them out…not a bad combo after all!!
