Blogger's Challenge - post 152

Good Afternoon,
Well after some internet and phone issues I am back online and posting my project for this week.  This week we had a sketch challenge with the following sketch...

Well  - I was determined to use some of my new things from the new Summer Mini Catalog...  So I used Watercolor Trio with the Cottage Wall designer paper.  I also thought that Itty bitty bits would be perfect for this card since there are 3 embellishments on the side.  So....

I designed this first card and made embellishments with Itty Bitty bits - but the embellishments really didn't show well since I used the paper with the white background.  So... I made a second card with the same layout and used the pale plum background.  Same sketch - same paper and same stamps - just changed the color up a little...
I layered the punched images from Itty Bitty Bits onto 1/2" circles of certainly celery.  I can't wait to see whata all of my blogging friends have done.

Have a great weekend!
