Purple, Blue, Green and a Sketch

Hello everyone, I have been busy surfing the blog challenges and I found the one for this color challenge: CR84FN60
The colors in the picture below pull you right in, aren't they beautiful?! I am so into bright colors right now, I couldn't resist...So this card I made is for this challenge, CR84FN60,  and for a sketch challenge which is pictured below, from Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges #88 -Sketch. I didn't post in time for Penny's challenge so I am entering two other challenges below.

We were supposed to use a grape, blue, and green for our main colors. I used Pacific Point, Concord Crush, and Gumball Green from Stampin' Up! I used the gumball green on the background stamp and onto the white glossy paper. I think the glossy paper gives the image more "umph." I also like the way the image seems to continue into the designer paper border. I could have used a solid, but since I was already using the blue solid and grape solid, I decided to add some extra texture instead.

This is the sketch from Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges, #88.

I'd also like to enter the following challenges:

Here is the recipe:
Stamps:  SU Clearly for You, Rubbernecker Victorian toile background
Inks: pacific point, concord grape, gumball green
Papers: pacific point, concord grape, gumball green, white glossy, DSP pack
Accessories: rhinestones, copper embossing powder, SU punches

Thanks for visiting, and I would love to hear what you think about my creation! I always appreciate you taking the time to comment.
