Hip Hip Hooray for Bellas!

Yesterday on the Splitcoaststampers, I saw that the Colour Challenge was Chocolate Chip, Blue Bayou and River Rock. The only colour that I have is Chocolate Chip. Unfortunately I can't buy can't eat card stock ;) So I decided to improvise and use colours that I thought were fairly close in hue - Not Quite Navy and Sahara Sand. And I think these colours work well together. I even found some designer paper that had those colours in it. This was a very quick card to make. By the way, I tried to take a close up of the gemstones on the flowers and dotted "i's" of the sentiment.

Well, I'm off to check out the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.

This is FANTASTIC -- the color challenge is a guide, you do not have to use the exact colors. You did a GREAT job on the challenge -- your Bella is so pretty.
