Fluking It For Helping Hudson

I sat down tonight to try and make a card for one of the last three challenges at Helping Hudson.  I say try because usually it takes me quite a few attempts to get it right for a challenge card.  But tonight, somthing magical happened... I fluked it!  Not only did I do this card in one attempt (seriously, that's MAJOR for me!), but I also managed to meet the criteria for all three challenges in one card!  That never happens for me!

So the challenges are - a sketch, to use embossing and sponging, and to use one colour and one neutral.  Check it out...

I've also managed to impress myself in another way... by using Old Olive!  I know, I know, many will be gasping at that comment because it's such a popular colour.  I wouldn't go so far as to say that I dislike it, but I definitely don't reach for Old Olive willingly.  I feel better now that I've confessed that... lol

Here's the sketch:
