Red Ruche Cherries



My girl Silke is hosting a sketch challenge this week on the Flourishes blog so I just had to play! I colored up my image on Tuesday and knew I wanted to use my red crepe ruche CS (love the texture on this stuff!) from Paper Temptress, but then I was stumped on what greens to use on the card so I let it sit. Well, LeAnne to the rescue!....yesterday's Color Throwdown colors were razzleberry, moss, and garden green...or you're allowed to use something "close" to those colors. I used the moss and garden greens, but switched out razzleberry for this red crepe color.

Have an awesome day!
