GKD sketch challenge

Good Morning!

I wanted to share this card last night when I uploaded my GKD color challenge card but my on-line service was really slow. So I will share it this morning.

What do you think of this wild color combo? The colors were inspired by a mat pack of pattern paper from DCWV. I honestly was not sure how the colors would look together. I guess the look ok.
Since the color combo was a bit different I thought I would use a stamp from Gina's Friendship Blooms to distract from the wild combo.

I colored with my prisma pencils, OMS and blending stumps. I have tried to do the cracked glass technique using an off brand product that said when it dried it would have the cracked look. I either put the stuff on wrong or they were story telling...hehehe.
This time I dug around in my embossing powder drawer and found a dusty little bottle of thick embossing powder. I did about three layers of embossing then put it in the freezer for 10 minutes and I was able to make some nice cracks. It's hard to see them in the picture, looks much better irl.

I used the scalloped circle nestibilities for matting the image. I like how it looks like it was double matted but it is just from embossing after I cut the scalloped circle.
I used white grosgrain ribbons and put the ric rak over it. I almost for got the bow - how could I do that when Joanne specifically said that was her new favorite thing! Hehehe!

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great rest of your day!
