27 Sketches in 27 Days-#3










It's the 3rd sketch & card of my 27 Sketches! Only 24 more to go :)

If you haven't already noticed from a lot of my cards-I've got a bit of SCD (Scallop Compulsive Disorder) he he!! I really have to challenge myself to leave scallops off of anything I do! See here-I even added it to my sketch card! Maybe someday I'll be burnt out from scallops.....NOT!

I was a bit shocked from the color combination I chose for this card. Orchid Opulance, Blue Bayou, and Certainly Celery.....Weird, huh? I actually like how it turned out though. I picked up the Orchid Opulance (seriously folks...it's been years since I've touched that color) and forced myself to come up with a color combination that I liked. It seemed to look fine while I was starting to work on it, then when I colored the trees and snowman, it all just came together. I love it when that happens!

Feel free to link your card!
