Pretty Palette #73

Hi there friends!  I'm here with another Pretty Palette color challenge.  I don't remember what the inspiration was for these colors, but I'm lovin' them!
 

This big, pretty flower is from the Be Dazzled digital stamp set from My Time Made Easy.  I colored it in GIMP using the colors from the swatch above.  I printed out two of them (wish I had printed three) and cut away part of one so I could layer it on top of the full one.  When I was coloring it in GIMP, I created a slightly darker shade of the blueberry so that it had more depth to it.  I added some Star Dust Stickles to the center of the flower.  The kraft embossed piece I found in my stash.  I believe that is an embossing folder from SU, as is the ribbon.  The paper is from My Mind's Eye called Moments.  The tag was punched with a Martha Stewart punch and I stamped the sentiment, from Tending the Garden acrylic stamp set (love all those little sentiments in that set...so versatile!) on it and attached it with some twine.  All of this was placed onto a black layer and then on some Neenah cardstock.

The sketch is a classic from Freshly Made Sketches.

You can see more inspiration using these colors on these blogs.
