2 Challenges - One layout!

I  love to host parties but I also enjoy playing along and visiting other blogs.  While perusing blogs, I came across two challenges: a Color and a Sketch.  I decided to combine the two to create one layout.  

 
Color Me Scrappy Challenge #36 and Let's Get Sketchy Challenge Week 3!
I just loved these colors and the sketch seemed interesting especially 
because you had to use two of the same picture and include butterflies.  

I  know, I know, most of you are probably thinking that I have my own sketch and color challenges.  I thought it would be fun to try these two (combined) and meet some other scrappy people.  I have never done another challenge on a blog (just linked up my projects).
My layout used two of the same pictures: one  black and white and the other color. I decided to play upon the colors in the color challenge to accent the color photo.  I used the grayish color to accent the black and white picture.  I wanted it to seem as if I was transitioning from black and white to color. This layout was slightly out of my comfort zone because it became busy fast.  The thing that bothers me the most is the O in you - I wish a had a different color sticker.


I Love You in...black and white & color

What do you think?
Happy commenting,
