This card is for the Create with Connie and Mary #190 sketch challenge.  I used the pastels on black technique from over at splitcoaststampers.  When I browsed through the pastels on black gallery, I spotted this card made by ckbytheresa.  I loved the colors she used and was very inspired.  This is what I came up with for my card.  I have to admit that this is not my favorite card I've ever made, but it's O.K.  I misted the main panel with shimmer spray to give it some sparkle.  Here are the supplies I used......
Stamps: Growing Green
2012 Create Challenges-008Paper: Black, Wisteria Wonder, Brilliant Blue, In-Color DP
Ink: VersaMark
Accessories: White EP, colored pencils, Labels die, scallop ribbon punch, Wisteria ruffled ribbon, Vintage Wallpaper EF
