A Sketch Challenge

Hello Everyone!

Coming to you from Colorado, I am sharing my newest card for The Challenge.  This week we are working with a sketch~

Here is your sketch~

I know what you are thinking; my card does not look like the sketch.  Well, I know it is a stretch, but as I browsed through some new goodies, I happened upon this stamp and my mind went right to this sketch, with the cactus flowers being the banners and the green part of the cactus ( is there a name for this?) being the oval.  Obviously, I turned the sketch as well.

The whole card is colored with Peerless Watercolors- love them!  The white layer is just an unpainted area of watercolor paper.  I scored lines before starting, so I had a guide as to where to paint the background. 
I was going for intense color ( I think I achieved that, don't you?  LOL)  so added some shading with Prismacolor Pencils.  I have yet to decide whether or not I like the background, but I ran out of time, so it is what it is.
The sentiment is Avery Elle, from the Bright Days set.
And that fabulous image?  Well it is a Impression Obsession  stamp, designed by the uber talented Dina Kowal of Mama Dini's Stamperia
Ready for some more inspiration?  Check out what the rest of the girls have for you!

Are you inspired to play?  We hope you do!  Link your card up at The Challenge!

Have a blessed week!
