PPA 103- sketch challenge

I managed to eek out a little time this week to play along with the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge.  I'm blessed to be a part of the talented group that calls themselves the Stampin' Pretty Pals.  I have a workshop this coming Saturday and I know a couple of the ladies are big fans of the new houndstooth embossing folder so I was determined to incorporate it into my card.  I also know that they liked the retired color Cameo Coral so I thought I'd try to use the new Calypso Coral in color.  I must say that coral is not a color that I gravitate towards so it took me a while to come up with something I was happy with.  I had to go to my color coach a couple of times to get my mo-jo going.  More than likely I'll still be using the same pack of Calypso Coral a year from now, but I'm really happy with how the card turned out.  I hope they like it too!
I used Basic Gray, Calypso Coral, a little Riding Hood Red and a bit of Just Add Cake DSP.  I love the new In Color ribbon.  Isn't it just darling?  What do you think of my card this week?
