It's Saturday and time Two challenges

Yup.....Saturday is the day for both the Artful Sentiments Copic Challenge AND the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge for Sweet N Sassy Stamps.

This week the copic challenge uses the colors shown to the side.  So,
what do those colors look like to you?  Well, I saw colors that I could use for my Artistic Outpost clown!  I have been wanting to use this clown from their set for a long time.  I've also wanted to do the Technique Junkie technique called Scappy Spots that was submitted by Nancy Judd.  This was just the perfect color combo!

******************************
Now on to the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge.  The sketch challenge this month is listed on the Sweet Stop blog.....click on the logo to the right to see it!!  This was a sketch with a spin.....you had to use recycled items.  I have been thinking about this sketch for a long time and NOTHING was coming to my mind.  I had a few small recycled items to use but they just weren't speaking to me.  For the card below, this is what I recycled....

1.  A Plow & Hearth sales magazine picture of a wreath and candle in a window
2.  A Mylar red balloon
3.  The blue badly stamped piece of cardstock
4.  Words from the inside of an old Christmas card.
5.  All the Cardstock was from my scrap bin


So....what is your opinion....passable? !!

Oh....definitely passable, Ann! The picture image is so perfect for the holidays and makes this card so pretty! I love all the ways you 'recycled' for this challenge...what a way to 're-create' something old into something new!
You rocked it!
