Colour Create and Taylored Expressions Challenge #68

For one of my last cards, I used a stamped Sugar Nellie Gorjuss image and was happy with how the colouring turned out. So I've been meaning to colour in another one. I'm always unsure of colour schemes so I turned to the Colour Create challenge and was happy that I actually have paper in those colours (sky blue, tan and ecru). And since I always need inspiration in terms of layout, I opted to use the sketch over at Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge.

I used the d'vine swirls embossing folder for the matte and rubbed it lightly with a chocolate brown pigment by Craft Smart. I coloured the image with my Prisma coloured pencils, stamped the daisy with a light blue ink by Studio G and used the second step stamp in the chocolate ink. The border punch is Fiskars and I found the ribbon at one of the clearance bins at Michael's. I also did the inside of the card as well.
