I'm playing along with Pinkfresh's last challenge for World Cardmaking Day: Flowers. I love this fun set from Pinkfresh. They are such cute flowers and they have the stamps to fill in the colors.
I made a deliberate decision to change up my go-to colors. If you read my posts, I think I'm in a bit of a rut with colors although some fall colors have appeared recently. But even this post from two days ago I used my favorite pink, yellows, blues and greens. And I used the same general colors, the last time I used these flowers.
So I started by pulling a blue that wasn't in the aqua family, then I pulled out a toned down yellow-gold and a toned down pinkish color. I even totally bucked my norm by not doing green leaves. AND - although most wouldn't even notice this, I'm not huge on gold. I like silver, not gold. I went totally crazy on this card - but I might be the only one who notices!!
I think I like it. Of course, maybe that's just because I adore the stamp and the sentiment!
Thanks to Pinkfresh for the week of challenges and inspiration.
