You're My (Prickly) Person

February's end-of-the-month challenge at Paper Smooches is a COLOR STORY.
Check out the color palette.

I'll have to admit being a little overwhelmed because I'm such a wimp with color.
Then I realized the colors come from their Rainbow Sherbet paper pad and breathed
a small sigh of relief.

The three cacti were in my stash of diecuts and I added shading around the edges for
a bit of dimension. The two outer pots were cut from white card stock, inked then
spattered with water. The center pot was cut from the Rainbow Sherbet paper pad 
and inked and spattered with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink.

I added the thorns, flowers and buds, and the pair of eyeglasses and face. The cacti
and pots were grounded with a strip of paper from the Half Moon paper pad and the
card was finished off with the sentiment.

I'm afraid my colors aren't exact, but "close enough" I think, for the challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Edited to add: I'm thrilled to be one of the winners of the Color Story Challenge!
My prize was an awesome pack of Paper Smooches stamps, some of which I don't have yet!
Thank you Kim, and Paper Smooches
