Just Sayin' Colored Sketch Mashup

Well, it's been a while since I've used one card for 3 different challenges. I wanted to join in on The Friday Mashup challenge to create a project use the embossing folder stamping technique with different shapes but I had never heard of the embossing folder stamping technique. So I had to google it to find out what it was and then I had to youtube it to see how it was done. Ok, pretty simple and shapes are easy because, well, everything is a shape...

Now I need a sketch to get my creative juices flowing so I peeked at Sketch Saturday.

Ok. Fairly simple sketch. Now, on to ColourQ for the final element.

Not a big fan of Rich Razzleberry with multiple colors but I'll give it a try.
So... here goes:
Well.... my card came out nothing like I envisioned it... I'm not loving it at all. The embossing folder stamping took me multiple trys to get it as dark as it is and it's not as dark as I would like (maybe next time I'll use a less detailed folder...?). If I could do the whole thing over I would likely not add in the Old Olive panel either. It just doesn't fit. Well, that's how it goes. Sometimes you make amazing things and other times you just don't lol. Hopefully I have better luck next time.
