CAS(E) This Sketch

I had this stamp set and Tim Holtz distress markers out from a previous project, so went with them again to create a card using the SCS Color Challenge colors (So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Mossy Meadow) with Donna Mikasa's sketch on the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge blog (and now I'm realizing this was last week's sketch - insert sad face here).  The CC's dessert option was to add gold... and... bonus points if you create a non-Halloween card.  I love using the markers to color directly on the stamp then stamping on watercolor paper.  I take a brush that is lightly loaded with water and do some blending.  It then looks like you've used two colors, but in reality, I only used one (Spiced Marmalade) for the flowers.  I did use two shades of green (Crushed Olive and Shabby Shutters) on the leaves.  This vellum paper is from a specialty pack from Stampin' Up and adds a pop of elegance to the card. 

STAMPS: Pretty Peonies (WPlus9), Strictly Sentiments 2 (WPlus9).

It's a dreary day here in Virginia with more rain during the night.  Leaves are probably nearing their peak here this week.  Lots of tourists passing through on the Blue Ridge Parkway and many stopping through our small towns for fall festivals, craft/art shows, etc.  Have a blessed day and thanks for commenting!

Oh wow Wanda, this is a stunning design. Just love how the angled stripes sets off the beautiful flowers.
