Three challenges in one

Now I finally have a card to show you. I wanted to join the stampchallenges and since they had a sketch I thought I'd pick up a colourscheme from the promarker challenge blog and a theme from roses on paper.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

The colorscheme I used from the promarker blog was poppy red and moss green which will be the challenge 30:th of june. They have a list of future colours on their blogs if you want a head start.

The roses on paper challenge was to join another challenge and use flowers (+ one of their stamps, I chose Magnolia).

The swing and the girl I got from Sharon. You can see on the last pic that she stamped the images on a shimmery paper. I didn't even notice it until I was done colouring, lol. It didn't show in daylight, but did a lot in my lamplight (bottom pic).

I turned the sketch 90 degrees. I put the girl a little tilted on the swing because I wanted the square of the swing to show. I also wanted it to look like she was leaning on one of the ropes. I added gold glitterglue to the middle of the flowers.
I was quite ambivalent towards the card in the beginning, but now I quite like it.

And finally I want to tell you that I'm applying to Belles 'n Whistles Guest Design Team member call with this card. Keep your fingers crossed ;)
