This is for today's FREE 4 ALL CHALLENGE # 73 - Twine. My layout is from Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 341. My color combo is from Wednesday's COLOR THROWDOWN # 150 to use certainly celery, taken with teal, rose red & pretty in pink. WOW love these colors together especially with this fabulous new stamp set just released from MARKS FINEST PAPERS called "ADIRONDACK SUMMER". I love these type of chairs and would love to have a garden like this one that actually grows. They say my grandmother had a green thumb, well I did not get that in my genetic make up. LOL.
My base is certainly celery with Hello Lucious dp. The layers for the sketch are rose red, certainly celery with teal twine and pink buttons and my focal panel is matted with taken with teal. I stamped the image on MFP white 140# cs then colored with copics.
Now I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.
