Seize the Sketch & Color Throwdown

This card came together in a strange way tonight...  I loved the colours in this week's Color Throwdown challenge, and when I stumbled across the sketch at the Seize the Sketch challenge I knew that I wanted to give it a try.  I've used these Carta Bella papers for several cards, so I pulled them out onto my craft table, and sitting there beside them was an image I'd coloured weeks ago, perfectly fitting the colours, the papers and the sketch?!  It all came together pretty quickly after that:
It's not quite this limey in person!!  Here were the challenges:
Patterned papers are True Friends, Carta Bella; Cardstock is Slate, Cotton Candy & White Daisy, CTMH; Ink is London Fog, Memento; Copic Markers;  Flower & Button, CTMH; Stamp set is Camper Crazy, CTMH.
