Little Succulents for Match the Sketch.....

Hello everyone: I'm back with another card I want to share with you.  I'm having so much fun participating in all of this challenges, I'm practically making a card every day and that is just fabulous. I usually do it early in the mornings, after my hubby goes to work, that way I have no interruptions, LOL!!
I made this card for the Match the Sketch challenge.
I love, love Succulents but I haven't been able to keep them alive once they arrive at my house. It could be to much water or not enough, or not enough light and warmth, specially in the Winter, which can be long and brutally cold up here in the Midwest. So, when I saw the adorable images from Power Poppy by Marcella Hawley, Sassy Succulents I just had to have it. This adorable images of this fabulous plants are irresistible.
I colored them with SU write markers in Old Olive, Wild Wasabi, Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango, Perfect Plum, Night of Navy, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. The paper and ribbon are from my stash. I used the Argyle embossing folder from SU for the Pistachio Pudding panel behind the images.
I hope you like this card, I love to read your comments so please tell me your thoughts and questions.
This is the sketch that inspired this card.
Maybe you would like to give it a try.
Thank you so much for stopping by, till next time, Happy Stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

  3. Very pretty card today. I love the embossing to make the trellis and the great job you did coloring the succulents. I love the real ones but you made the stamped ones come alive.
