Basically So Tangerine for PPA Card Sketch

Good Morning! It's another FABULOUS sketch challenge at the PPA! Love the row of three squares! This element is so fun because there is so much you can do with it! Here's my take on the sketch:

My color choices were inspired by the challenge at the Color Throwdown! We were to use Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, and Basic Gray! Of course I threw in Whisper White as well! I combined a couple of my favorite Stampin' Up! stamp sets: Pocket Silhouettes (111672) and Gratuitous Graffiti (111636) Background stamp!
Guess what else??? My card has a HUGE sneak peek from the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog which becomes available to customers May 1st! Can you guess what it is? Okay, I can't wait to tell you, it's the NEW Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder! Isn't it gorgeous!?! Honestly, once I ran this through my Big Shot, I wasn't sure which side was the 'right' one side they both looked beautiful. So I just chose which one I liked the look of best!
