Two Challenges in One Card!

Hello all! This card was made using two challenges I found. I haven't really done challenges before, but I am going to start so that my creations are more my own and not my version of someone else's idea! The color challenge I used was Rich Razzleberry, Dusty Durango, and So Saffron. I didn't think I would like the combo, but after looking at some examples, I decided to give it a try. I have to admit that Dusty Durango has not been a favorite, so I have an abundance of that color. I have to say that I do like it in this combo. This card turned out much better than I imagined. I also used a sketch from Stampin' Connection. It was sketch callenge 18. Combining a color challenge and a sketch challenge are a really good starting point if you are having a case of stamper's block and want to make something original. I think I may keep doing them and see what I can come up with!
Have a great Sunday!

Great card. I have been trying to do challenges more lately. It helps to get me "out of my box".

Great card, I love how you colored the stamp in, and despite dusty durango being my least favorite too, I do like those colors together, very nice job on the challenge.
