CC333....Take Care

Happy Tuesday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card made with this week's color challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I promise I will stop using this sketch sometime soon, well maybe!!!

As you all know I love sketch challenges, but color challenges are a bit harder for me. I have been pushing myself to do more of them. Today's colors are Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and of course, a neutral of your choice.

Normally when I start a color challenge I pull out the colors of the challenge in card stock and see how I might want to use them. I new right away that the tangerine and daffodil looked good together and that either one could be used for flowers. I am generally OK with the colors if I can stamp some flowers. :)
 I also thought that the Island Indigo was dark enough to almost act as a neutral, so I used it that way. I made the base of the card with the Indigo and then added another layer of the indigo that I embossed with the square lattice EF.

I used the awesome hostess set from the Summer Mini called  "Love & Care". This is one of my favorite sets, right now. I stamped the flowers with tangerine tango and the stems and leaf are old olive. I added some daffodil delight satin ribbon, some silver pearls, (non SU) and a little butterfly for my accents. I hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!
