You are...

Does anyone else struggle with missing deadlines? I'm talking about papercrafting challenges here.  I've made a few cards for challenges but I can't seem to get the photos taken, edited, and uploaded in time. I guess that's the "challenge" part for me. 

Anyways, all that to say, I made this card for a sketch challenge but I didn't get it uploaded to the site on time so...ya. Missed it. To be honest, I can't even remember what site the challenge came from so maybe it's all for the best :)

Here's the card:

 It's pretty basic...not a lot to it but I'm so drawn to the colours. It's just Basic Gray, Wild Wasabi, and Baja Breeze with a Very Vanilla panel. I'm pretty sure the stamp set is called "You Are" and I believe it's a demonstrator only stamp set. I borrowed it while at the Papercrafter's Paradise Retreat. I think it would be a great start to use for downline cards or just encouragement cards in general.
I'll have to play with these colours some more. I love how it could be a masculine card or just a soft anybody card. 
 Even the little flowers are sponged! Great technique! Easy and effective! Did I mention cheap? It's only $4.50 for a package of 3 sponges. I cut each sponge into 8 wedges which means that you can have 24 different colours of sponges and they'll only cost 18 cents each!
