Two challenges, one card...

EDIT: I took a photo of the card and replaced the scan. The colors are much more normal now :)
I am combining a couple of challenges with this one card - the first is Amy R's weekly sketch and the second challenge is a new color challenge being posted each week by Kelly. Her color choices for the week are Sweet Leaf, Breeze and White (Close To My Heart). So here's my entry:



Sorry it's a scan and not a photo - it was faster to get done this morning :)
The stamps are from Shirley's 2 Girls, the paper is from Close To My Heart, ink is Memento and the image is colored with Copics. The green looks a little off in the scan - it's actually a little "greener" and not quite so olivey looking and there is a little more color to the image (the water is pale blue but you can't tell that in this pic). I guess the answer to this problem is to take a photo of this card and edit this post at a later time - whaddya think?

I hope you'll join in the fun and try your hand at Kelly's color challenge, as well! And come back here this Sunday for a new So Sketchy Sunday featuring Kelly's next color challenge!
