Sweet Day!!!

And while I was feeling quite creative, I decided to go ahead and make two more cards! This one is for two challenges, Mojo Monday and ColourQ. I love it when I can combine a sketch and color challenge all at the same time.

For this card I needed to use grey, black, tangerine, and yellow. Not terribly difficult, right?!! My first thought was to make a cute card with a giant candy corn on it. See, it's that fall thing that I told you I'm addicted to. But when I thought about it some more, I wanted to make something that wasn't fall themed after all. But what to make with all those colors? A little light bulb went on and I thought Citrus fruits!!! They are happy and orange and yellow. So here's what I ended up with:

I really liked the way it came out. It reminds me of those old encyclopedias that I used to look at when I was little that would have a black and white picture next to the text of the item I looked up. I didn't want to emphazise too much color but just enough to make it all pop.
The sketch that I incoporated is Mojo Monday #210.
