Coloring Down the Lines- Cajun Craze

Hello My Crafties...  Today we are hopping down the lines with Cajun Craze.  If you started with Robbie over at Inkedx2 then you started at the beginning, and she probably explained it, but if you are new to me, and starting here then I should fill you in...  Each week, my little group of buddies picks a color out of the Stampin' Up! collection, then we all consult the Color Coach (a cool product from Stampin' Up!), and follow the color choices given to us.  This week the coach gave us two different color combinations, and since I have used the other before, I thought I would give this new one a whirl!  The combo I chose is Cajun Craze, Bermuda Bay, and Crushed Curry.  As I am still on crutches, my mom was helping me out with gathering supplies.  When we pulled the colors out, my mom said, "oooh, that looks Southwest"... And so we ran with that - after all, art is really just following a vibe, right?  To add another of difficulty, we used a sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments. Here is their sketch:

And here is my card:

This is a gate-fold card, using some great dies from Stampin'Up!  I used the zig zags from the Tasteful Trim die, the leaf from the Autumn Accents die to cut two vellum leaves, which I then cut into "feathers", and the new deco labels framelets to make the sentiment panel.
