Lasting Memories Challenge # 78 - Color Challenge with a sketch

This weeks challenge is a fun and easy one - we're asking you to use this sketch WITH the color inspiration photo. Look carefully .. there's black, grey, white and then of course all those pastels. Can't wait to see what you create this week!!

Here is the sketch and inspirational picture.


Karen's offering up some candy this week!!! Here's what you have a chance to win if you follow the sketch and use the colors.

This is my interpretation of the sketch. This year will be my son's fourth Easter and I just scrapped his first Easter for this challenge. I free hand cut the glittered grass on the bottom of the page. I stamped pink and pink with brown Easter eggs using Studio G stamps I got from the $1 bin at JoAnne's Fabric. The tulips are stamped from the Studio G and then I colored them with my pencils. I stamped Easter on a CTMH cut out that I chalked brown.  The patterned paper the pics are matted on is from CTMH. I hope you like my layout. I think this might be one of my favorites now.
