Challenges, Challenges

I combined two challenges for this one. First is Beate's Sketch. Second is Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration. Originally I was going to use a So Saffron card base, but I didn't have any other Old Olive on the card except one of the layers (After I adhered the white piece stamped with the heart I realized I should've added some Old Olive to it). Anywho, my card base is Old Olive. I stamped Polka Dot in So Saffron on a piece of Whisper White and added it to my base after adding a piece of 1/4" Whisper White grosgrain ribbon. My next layer is a piece of Rose Red, which I faux stitched using my paper piercer and Signo White Gel Pen. I then added a piece of Old Olive, also faux stitched. And I faux stitched my piece of So Saffron. I inked up my heart with So Saffron, then colored the big flowers with my Rose Red marker (and I should've colored some of the leaves Old Olive) and stamped it on Whisper White. Then using my Rose Red marker I colored the word always on one of the saying stamps and stamped it in the corner.
