Color and Sketch Challenge

Here is a card I made for a couple of challenges this week.  First there is a color challenge going on at Cr84fn Color challenge.  Here is the inspiration for the challenge.

And the sketch challenge is from Mojo Monday.  And here is the sketch this week for the challenge.

And now, here is my card.  First, let me say that I will be mailing this card in the morning to a friend whose mother died suddenly last week.  I was unable to leave town last week to go to the funeral, so I wanted to let her know with a special card that she is in my prayers.    

The papers I used are from K&Co and My Mind's Eye.  I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the coral paper and then inked it with  bronze.  All of the paper edges were inked in brown.  The sentiment is from Just Rite Stampers.  I used oval scallop dies from Spellbinders to cut and emboss the sentiment labels.   For a little extra embellishment, I added a butterfly dimensional sticker from Studio112 and some little pearls from Recollections.  

Thank you for dropping by my blog today.  I hope you will visit often.
