Our Daily Bread Designs had a sketch challenge this week. Since I was away the majority of the week, I was just able to complete it. lol!! I completed it this a.m. and was hoping to load it then but my computer and I have been fighting all day. IT won out until now. HOW FRUSTRATING!!! Anyway.... here it is. The set I used is another sneak peak of "You are the Potter" from Our Daily Bread Designs to be released tomorrow, March 1!!Instead of using a paper panel on the left side of my card, I decided to add some texture and use burnt orange velvet and off-white lace. I water colored the pots using Stampin up Markers and my aqua brush. The brown frame is Prism Metallic paper also available at ODBD. I love this paper!! I dry embossed it using one of my floral cuttlebug folders. I normally don't use oranges but I felt the color gave it more of a southwest feel with a touch of elegance.
