Another Color Challenge

I'm happy and honored to say that I'm a guest designer this month for the color challenges at Splitcoast Stampers.  Each Tuesday is a new challenge.  This week's hostess, Karen, picked a fresh combo of colors - Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach and Pear Pizzazz.
This was a simple and fun card to put together.  Unlike like yesterday's card which presented some challenges and took awhile, this card went together quickly.
And I LOVE this set.  It's the first time I have used it other than a sentiment and it is WONDERFUL!  I stamped and die cut a lot of flowers then starting arranging them. I used my phone to snap a picture when I was happy with the arrangement so that when I started gluing everything together I had a reference.  Phones are extremely handy!
After I had it all arranged I used a bit of baker's twine in crushed curry to wrap the stems.  In playing with the set I realized that it would be perfect for weddings, anniversaries - any occasion where you might give a bouquet of flowers. Imagine this card with a wedding sentiment in the bridal party colors.  And because of the variety of flower types - it even has tulips - the possibilities are endless.  I'd say if you want just ONE floral stamp set, this is it!
