Color Throwdown #98

Good Morning All!
And a happy tuesday to you all.
 
Todays card is for the Color Thrown #98 
challenge.This is the colour swatch we were given

And this is my take on it.


I seem to be stealing other peoples ideas alot just lately and for that I appologise ( a little) but don`t they say that initation is the best form of flattery lol.

I got the idea for the flower from Karen 
who found a tutorial HERE.
They are so easy to make and look so effective. If I can made them, anyone can. The only problem I had was that it calls for a scalloped edge circle which really should be a spellbinders set because of the different sizes. I only have a jumbo punch which is why my flower is quite large.
I am, however, working on some more that I have made slightly differently and I will post them later.

The DP is Pink Petticoat Dots in Olive which is the nearest I could get to Moss. I`ve used a Martha Stewart Doily punch along the bottom just to give it an edge.
Some Chocolate brown ribbon and a bow to even it out.
The sentiment is by Papertrey and cut out with Spellbinders Labels 4 die.
If you look carefully, there are 2 leaves poking out of the flower. I used an embossing border bar from the Glitter Girls to dry emboss in moss card and cut them out.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
