CTD #385 & CTS #165 {Beautiful}

Thursday already? Where does the time go? My Spring Break is slowly fading away and so I wanted to spend some more time in my craft room. Hubby is out riding his bike. Although I should be prepping supper or scrubbing some pots, my craft room beckoned...and so I went in search of some inspiration!

I stumbled upon the current Color Throwdown Challenge #385. This is one of the first challenges I ever did as a blogging and it still is a favourite of mine. I loved the teal, aqua and gold combo! I used Mermaid's Lagoon & Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink to watercolor my roses. The sentiment is gold embossed.

Then I wanted to play with a sketch and I remembered the great sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch. I remembered it with the sentiment on the stripe going across...oh well! I hope they can see how I was inspired!
