Ashley's Color Combo

Hey everyone Im finally back today. This has just been a bad week for me! If you read my very long post below you know how Tuesday was for me. Well unfortunately Wed. wasnt much better. I got my ignition($125) fixed only to find out I need a new transmission. My cousin is on his way back to Alaska and we didnt get to see each other at all (insert frown). I ended up having to go to the Dr. yesterday after being in the pool all day Monday w/the kids my ears were bothering me. I have a hole in my eardrum caused by infection. So I am on a mega round of antibiotics for 20 days and after 10 days on the medicine if the hole doesnt appear to get smaller I have to go to a specialist to prevent any permanent hearing problems. So when it rains it pours right?!!!?
After the week I've had and on top of that NO SCS! So I was super excited when Ashley emailed me today to see if I wanted to do a color challenge! The colors she chose were creamy caramel, sage shadow, and bravo burgundy(or cranberry crisp). So I went looking through my stamps to see which one I wanted to play with for this color combo and pulled out my little Inky Antics turtle. I havent played w/the scalloped punches as much as everyone else in fact I dont even own one(GASP). My Mom does and when she went on vacation I borrowed them and punched some out for myself. This turtle fit perfectly in my mega?(pink) circle in WW layered with the giga(purple) in creamy caramel. The bravo burgundy strip is stamped with the flower from Background Basics in burgundy but its hard to see in the pic. The ribbon and button I picked up @ Walmart. The card sketch can be found at Sketch This #16. The turtle is colored w/prisma pencils and blended w/gamsol. Check out this great tutorial at Kirsten's blog on coloring w/prisma pencils.
Also check out Ashleys blog to see what she creates for our color challenge. . Hope you have a great day!
