Color Challenge.......Hello, You

Happy Wednesday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card i made using the color challenge this week on SplitcoastStampers.

Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie, and Primrose Petals. Such a pretty color combo. I pulled out my single Stampin Up stamp called "People Like You". I love to color this fun flower stamp.
I used my aqua brush and Pumpkin pie and Primrose petals to color the flowers.
I also used a bit of crushed curry in the middle of the flowers and some pear pizzazz on the stems.

I used some rustic cream card stock for my base and also for the image. I stamped with black stazon to water color.
I decided to use a different sentiment than the one on the stamp so I pulled out my "Regarding Dahlias" stamp set for this sentiment. I then used the Decorative Label Punch to punch out the sentiment and then two other punches with Pumpkin Pie card stock and matted the back. I then used some dimensionals to add the sentiment.
The main image is matted with Basic Gray and Pumpkin Pie card stock. I then mounted this piece with some dimensionals to the base at an angle. I finished it up with a few sticky back gold pearls in the corner and under the sentiment.
I wanted to keep it fairly simple for easy mailing.
Thanks for stopping by today!!
