Paper Players Color Challenge

Happy Monday peeps!!!
Today I am sharing a card I made using the gorgeous color challenge on the The Paper Players Blog.
The challenge colors are Crumb Cake, Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party.

You all know I love this Stampin Up set "Bordering on Romance", I had not yet colored those pretty flowers with Wisteria so when I saw the color challenge I knew right away that I needed to give it a try!
I used Pear Pizzazz on the leaves and Pool Party on the buds. I did sneak in a small amount of Daffodil Delight on the little daisies and flower centers. I then shaded all around the image with crumb cake.

I cut the main image out with the labels framelits and then the layer under that is wisteria that I embossed with the square lattice EF.
The sentiment comes from the Occasional Quotes hostess stamp set.
I used the doily die, I made two cuts. Love that die!
The DSP on the top comes from the Beau Chateau paper pack. I added some pear pizzazz scallops and used crumb cake seam binding. I colored a couple of basic pearls with a marker. I slid a bit of the second doily under the scallops and ribbon for some added interest at the top.

Kinda a busy card, just the way I like 'em!!!
Thanks for stopping by today and

So soft & pretty! I love all the details that really make this card come together. The colors are just gorgeous. Did you use your aqua painter for the flowers & around the image? I have not tried anything like that yet, but have the supplies so need to give it a whirl.
