I did this card for the Color Throwdown Challenge to use kraft, yellow, pink, and green. I a\lso did this for the Mixmedia challenge on Splitcoaststampers to use torn paper.  This cactus from Unity just seemed the perfect image to use with these colors. It grows in the dessert (kraft), it is green has pink or yellow blossoms, and loves the sun (yellow). You can find these challenges here: 

I used distress oxide inks to sponge on the torn edges of the pink and yellow. I useed versafine black ink to stamp the image and sentiment. I used copic markers and colored pencils to color the cactus, white get pen to accent the thorns, and yellow stickles for the flower centers.


  1. Your card is so stylish. I love how you put it together. Thanks for playing along with us at Color Throwdown this week!

  2. How fun! Love the torn paper elements and your "punny" sentiment. Thanks for joining us for this week's Color Throwdown!

  3. Beautiful take on the throwdown colors and am loving the torn edges in the design!
