PPA 206 and JUGS 244

Here is another two challenges I combined. I wanted to use the sketch from Just Us Girls (JUGS) #244 and I needed a color challenge. PPA 206 had a color challenge this week that is ending soon too. So I did combine them and I do like how they turned out!

Here are the Challenges:

I played around with several combinations and this is what I put together.
The card base is Whisper White. I used an old Pacific Point DSP for the background. I used So Saffron for a mat that I used to land the Baked Brown Sugar that holds the colored flowers. The flowers were stamped from the new Stampin'Up! Hostess stamp set I Like You. I colored them in with Stampin' Write Markers, So Saffron,  Pacific Point and Baked Brown Sugar. I used a Blender Pen to drag out the outlined color into the leaves, it makes the Pacific Point a lighter shade. I used the Pacific Point Candy Dots from the Brights collection as a center for each of the larger flowers. I taped a ribbon, Whisper White Satin, around the DSP and then tied a knot bow onto that ribbon. I used the Modern Label Punch And punched it's shape, The Word Window Punch, to hold the Sentiment that is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.
Here is my Card:
Here is a peek at the inside. Simple strips of Pacific Point and So Saffron where cut to  finish the inside of the card.

Blessings to you All!
