Exciting news---my first reveal for Color Me Scrappy!

Hi, and thanks for sticking around for a second post:-)
I am so excited to announce that I have joined the Color Me Scrappy design team.  If you are not familiar with this site, there are two challenges per month. 
Both are based on a particular color palate, and then there is a "twist".  The first challenge of the month has a sketch to accompany it, and the second challenge has a unique twist---for example, one of their previous challenge twists was to use fabric. 
Can I say I LOVE being part of this team and completing these challenges?  You know why?  Because they are challenging.  And they make me THINK.  And thinking helps you grow creatively.
Here is the color palate for challenge #49:
And here is the sketch to use:
Normally, I'd never think to put lavender with orange...but like I said, I had to think hard.  SO after putting together the colors and the sketch,
here is what I came up with:
I ended up loving these colors together! 
Here is how and where I snuck some lavender,light blue, and dark blue in...sneaky!
I also used a transparency that I have had for YEARS!  And I love using stuff up!
And a closeup of my flair and some awesome arrows!
Instead of the solid piece of paper that goes across the bottom of the sketch, so I chose to use some rows of hearts instead.  I love sketches for giving you a place to start, and then giving you the freedom to interpret.
So head over to Color Me Scrappy and see what the rest of the team came up with!  I hope you link up your project!
