Freshly Made Sketches #6 and Inkspirations Colour Challenge #20

Wednesday is here and that means it is time for another challenge at Freshly Made Sketches!  I decided to ink up the Summer Solstice set for this card and wanted to play along with the pretty colour challenge over at Inkspirations

Aren't these colours so pretty! Love them together!!!!  The colours really informed me how to make my card this week!!!  Here is my card created with these two challenges.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you get the chance to play along with both challenges this week!
