Timeless Tuesday: Poppy, Emerald & Rich Browns!

Good morning Flourishes Friends, it's Tuesday and we're back with another challenge for you. This week our hostess, Broni, is challenging us to: Use Poppy, Emerald and Rich Browns On Your Creations!
WOW! Ok, I have never used all of those colors all at once so this was a perfect challenge, for me!

Because these are some pretty bold colors I kept my card design very simple.

I used Flourishes "Flowers and Frames" stamp set stamped in Memento "Summer Sky" ink, to create my frame around the sentiment. The sentiment is from Flourishes "Mother's Words Of Wisdom" stamp set that I stamped in "Rhubarb Stalk" Memento ink. The blue and white DP is from Theresa Collins "Now & Then" paper pad, and layered with Flourishes Poppy, Emerald Coast and Rich Browns CS under it. I diecut a piece of vellum with a Spellbinders Perfectly Pierced Classic Frames die, and edged it with more Memento "Rhubarb Stalk"  ink and placed it under my sentiment and added some Color Made Easy "Basque Red" ribbon under it and added a flower to finish my card.

I have to say that I love this color combination and how they compliment each other so nicely! I may try another card with these colors again!
