A Freshly Made Color Throwdown

Today I put two Challenges that I love together.   Color Throwdown had some wonderful colors this week.  These fresh colors made it perfect for my other favorite challenge - Freshly Made Sketches!

I used Close To My Heart's colors of Lilac Mist, Buttercup, Sunset and Grey Wool.   WOW - it's been a LONG time since I've even opened my Lilac Mist pad!  But I love these colors together.... who would have thought Sunset with Lilac Mist and Buttercup?

I used one of my favorite new stamps for this 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card - Just For You (B1398).  The Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge makes a perfect cut for the large flower.  I alternated the colors as I stamped the petals for the flower.   I added a Sunset Button from the Sunset Mini Medley Collection (Z1338) and also some grey baker's twine from the Baker's Twine Neutral Assortment (Z1701).  I tied little French Knots in the center of each of the three medallions.

Here are my inspirations for today's card.
