Flourishes Noontime Challenge: Country Road!

Welcome back to Day 2 of Flourishes Noontime Challenges! Today we are challenging you to:

 Use your Favorite Country Road as inspiration for your card or creation! Take a photo and pick three colors in it, then use those three in your creation. When you upload to SCS, please use keyword: FLLCAUGRW2.

I live in the High desert of California, so the grass is brown most of the year for us. I chose to focus on the dusty dry hills and the many golden brown hues in my challenge inspiration photo.

For my three challenge colors, I chose to use dark brown, soft golden brown and a pop of blue to keep it all from looking too muddy. Keeping everything clean and simple.
I used Flourishes new "Country Roads" stamp set that I stamped in Memento "Rich Cocoa" ink onto some DP. Then I sponged around my image with some Memento "Desert Sand" and "Rich Cocoa" Ink. I matted it then added some Flourishes "Kraft Jute" and a small flower. Then I used my punches for interest on my two layers then matted my first layer onto my Kraft cardstock base.
