Color and Sketch Challenge

I was playing with a color challenge (turquoise, kraft, brown, and ivory) from Paper Wings and a sketch challenge by Heather Scott and I just don't know what to think. The computer and camera have a tendency to not give the actual colors. The kraft (pale brown) is showing up blueish grey! Beats me! I tried adjusting the colors in Photoshop but it just wouldn't work.

I used the stamp sets Build a Background and Tiny Tidbits, both hostess sets. This top card was my first try. Ok but doesn't thrill me. I used a Cuttlebug folder on the turquoise and carried the design through to the "kraft" using Cloud White VM ink. The stamping was done using Noir PH ink.

Here I added white buttons and Turquoise Scrappers floss. I like it a bit better but guess I just couldn't get this sketch to work for me. What would you do different??

Cute! It's funny that you used Heather's sketch for the color combo challenge! That's what I'm doing too! :)

I like both your cards but maybe the button-y/flossy-y one a wee bit better.
