Pine landscape

CAS Colours & Sketches challenge #193 double challenge
I have to admit the colors stumped me for a while and the sketch also.
I just had an aha moment whilst I was rummaging through my supplies.
To make it work I had to rotate the sketch 90degrees clockwise, do you see it?
Iused the mint for my front panel and out of it I die cut the  Craft Emotions pine landscape, which is just about the width of a card.

The orange and purple/burgundy I thought could be sunset, of course the trees wouldn’t be green anymore, but I call upon my artistic freedom haha.
I stamped the sentiment in Electric lime from Ranger, as I thought black it too stark, and I wasn’t sure if silver embossing was aloud; so I went tone on tone, the stamp is from Hero Arts (cl 728 deer 4x6)

Mounted the minty panel with foam tape, the Inking was done on the card base.
