Sweet Stampin' Challenge No. 13

Thank You

Good morning - I'm up bright & early this morning (well for a Saturday that is) as I'm off to Birmingham today to meet up with my Sweet Stampin DT boss Emma and a few other lovely blogging buddies for a day of crafting - I'm so excited and have been looking forward to it all week!!

So here's my card for this week's Sweet Stampin Challenge which is a colour challenge. I always struggle with colour challenges, they're nearly always colours I think won't work together (and I'm always proved wrong of course) but once I'd decided what I was doing with this one I was ok. I wanted to use my newest SU! stamp set "One of a Kind" and went for a simple flower card (you know me, like to keep it simple!) I think I like the finished result, but I'm not certain yet, I've made the card for my Mother-in-Law as a thank you for my birthday pressie and hubby thinks she'll really like it, so that's the main thing.

Here's your colour choices for this week, you need to use at least three of the four, like I did, you can use all four if you want and if you don't have SU! colours (and if not, why not LOL!) then a close match is fine:

The prize this month is a mixed pack of 6x6 papers from lil' ol' me so I hope you can join us once again this week.

Here's the details for my card (all Stampin; Up!):
Stamps - One of a Kind; Fresh Cuts
Cardstock & SU! markers - Cameo Coral; Summer Sun; Real Red; Whisper White
Button - Playground Designer Buttons
Other - corner punch; Boho Blossoms punch

Non SU:
Embossing folders

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

So pretty. I love all the layers and textures. Had to reread the colour challenge instructions to see that you could use just three colours (I was looking for the turquoise, lol). Thanks for playing along.
