AQUA, aqua everywhere...

It's November and my turn to host the monthly sketch challenge at Scrap Pile.

This is the sketch:

This is also my contribution for the first Design Dollies Colour Challenge for November.  The fabulous colour combination is: AQUA, YELLOW, RED and BLACK.  I went a bit heavy on the aqua but I couldn't resist the gorgeous Bo Bunny 'Gypsy' papers I found in my stash.  I loved this range and bought it maybe six months ago (??) then put it away somewhere safe and misplaced the package... and found it again only last week.

I'm entering this layout at:
# One Stop Craft ~ Challenge #104 ~ Anything goes

I used some of the aqua offcuts to make this card:
