Sketch Saturday meets Colour Create

When I first saw the colour combination for the second challenge on the Colour Create blog, I have to admit that my initial reaction was...bleugh! I love the colour aqua, but I really can't stand peach!
However, after looking at all the gorgeous DT cards, and having a little play, I have to admit, that it's not that bad after all!
I've combined the colour scheme with the fab sketch from Sketch Saturday, which I've stuck to quite closely, just adding the optional extra from Colour Create of a 'DIY' flower made with my Nesties, then embossed ('Swiss Dots' folder), then distressed. My main image is a stamp by Pollycraft (Woodland Twirls - 'Feathers'), the sentiment stamp is by Whiff of Joy, and all cardstock has been embossed with various Cuttlebug folders ('Swiss Dots', 'D'Vine Swirls' and 'Spots & Dots').

This card is going to my partner for this month's friendship swap on the Docrafts forum.
