SOS Color Challenge.....

Hello everyone: The SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge has a color challenge for you to play with this coming week, the shades are rich and beautiful so I hope you come along and play with us.
Here is my card that I hope will inspire you to join my teammates and me in the gallery.

I used an image from a set by Art Impressions called SHOPPES, which contains 4 stamps to create a beautiful tri-fold card, I only used one of the images on my card.
I stamped it on a die cut piece of watercolor paper that had been glued to a Terra Cotta die cut piece of card stock that I had in my stash of "I changed my mind" box, colored it with a few SU markers that are still ok with ink. 
The blue layer is done with another piece of card stock from a pad called Kraft Core and sanded out a bit to reveal the undertones, I really like this paper.
The sentiment is from the set.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Perfectly Penned", the little cup on the corner has unknown origins, my 20 y/o granddaughter bought it for me from the bargain bin at the craft store.

So I hope you find some time to come and play along with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, please visit the blog to check out my teammates awesome projects for your inspiration.

I would like to play along with the following challenges.
