Forget Me Not

This card is for two challenges. The first is for today's SCS color challenge CC197. We are to use baha breeze, kiwi kiss, basic gray, and night of navy(optional). I used mostly night of navy and kiwi kiss with some baja as accents and gray as some shadow effects on my tree. The color challenges never really focus on how much of a color one is to use. Maybe I am safe...lol!!!! This card is also for the Flourishes Twilight Challenge (FTC). The information can be found here.
I am an avid reader. I love all kinds of books, but I have never been fond of anything with horror, etc. etc. So, when my dd mentioned that a lot of her friends were reading the Twilight series and asked if I would read Twilight to see if it were okay for her to read as she really wanted to read the book and go to the movies with her friends, I thought...rats!!!! I have to read a book about a Vampire? Just NOT my thing. Well, I started the book and the story line was so good, and the writing so well planned, that I was hooked. So, four really thick books later, I am making a Twilight card for a challenge. It is a great series. For my card, I used Flourishes Forest of Trees and Spring Ephemerals. I wanted to created the look of the snowy final battle scene in the woods. The required element for this challenge was to use something sharp. I used my MS prickly branch punch. I also thought the sentiments bleeding heart and forget-me-not were appropriate on many levels for this series. Anyone can play!!!! Love to see what Flourishes Twilight cards you can create!!!!
While this sky may have the appearance of a Zindorf look....I could only wish I could do her technique.....I used NO brayers. Only sponges.
