Just Us Girls #185 - Color Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone!  This week's challenge at Just Us Girls is a color challenge, and Marisa chose these lovely spring colors!

I'm late getting mine done, and I had no idea what I was going to do.  When I went to my craft table, these new stamps from WPlus9 were sitting there so I of course had to use them!  This set is called Paisley Prints and I just love paisley prints!  I made my background with them in the four challenge colors.  Then I added the pink piece on the bottom.  I first stamped it with the sentiment from Stylish Sentiments:  Birthday from Papertrey Ink, then used a SU punch for the decorative edge, and finally ran it through the Swiss Dots folder for some texture.  The flower is made from PTI felt and Beautiful Blooms II dies.  I added a button threaded with some baker's twine.  The flourish is from My Favorite Things and I cut it from certainly celery paper, then added some Star Dust Stickles for some sparkle.  It's so much prettier and colorful in person.  I just couldn't capture it in the picture.  Such a shame!

I used Fusion card challenge's sketch for my card this week.  Love this challenge!
