Two Challenges!

Here I am again today!
I actually stamped and did 2 challenges this afternoon. Well, I combined 2 challenges in one card! Madison went out with Grampie and I went to work in my craft room!

Challenge #1 - Color ThrowDown #54 - using Basic Gray, Blush Blossom, Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust - definitely not a color combo I would have used before so it really was a Challenge for me!
Challenge #2 - Mercy's Sketch Challenge MTSC#33
I spent a lot of time on this card... primarily b/c I was trying to get the color combo to work for me... I quite like the end result!
Here are views of the outside and the inside:
I used the Scallop Oval Nesties - for the Vanilla piece I left the Nestie in place and sponged Really Rust ink in the center and then stamped the sentiment in Basic Grey ink; Basic Grey DP; Blush Blossom ribbon (not S. Up!)

On the inside I placed a piece of Blush Blossom edged with the punch; more DP and RR CS; a RR scallop and a quote from some DP I have from Our Daily Bread Designs
Hope you have had some creative moments today!
Blessings!
