CAS Floral Triple Challenge

Happy Friday, y'all!  I unexpectedly have the day off so I plan to play in my craft room as much as I can. Wooo!

But first, a card for today.  And it's a triple challenge card!

Check out the Retro Rubber challenge:

I did the left column, watercolor + flowers + die cut.  I did a very fast watercolor wash on the card base (had to be super quick to get this done before I had to leave to pick Ryan up the other day) and added some splat stamps for a bit of extra texture.  I've had Art Gallery for over a year, Painted Poppies is two years old, and Flowering Tulips (the sentiment) isn't retro...yet.

Here's this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

And the Color Throwdown:

I used Mint Macaron, Sweet Sorbet, So Saffron, and Night of Navy, though the sentiment looks black in the photo I promise it's navy.  Kinda wish I'd used a different blue.  Also I really thought the second color here looked like Cajun Craze, but the challenge write-up said "strawberry", so I figured that was a good reason to use the new Sweet Sorbet.  It's very pretty and I also covered it in Wink of Stella because why not?

Hope you have a great Friday, peeps.  I'm going to go be productive!
