Wowsa!! I LOVE these colors!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Tuesday! Here is my card for today's Color Challenge on SCS, CC206, More Rosey Kiwis.

I must admit, when I saw today's combo, I was a little scared...but now that I actually made a card with them, I really LOVE these colors together!!!

For this card, I started by stamped my Whisper White panel with the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set in Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss & More Mustard. I then stamped the flower and watercolored it in More Mustard, and the stamens (is that what they are called???) in Rose Red. I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the stamens (???) with my Two Way Glue Pen.

The sentiment is from Beautiful Borders and I punched it with my Small Oval Punch and matted it with my Large Oval Punch. I added two White Brads from the 5/16 Neutrals Brads (Thank you SU!!!) to the ends of the ovals. My Kiwi Kiss panel was embossed with the Small Dots Texturz Background, and my middle panel uses the new Eyelet Border Punch. I finished off the card with some Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon and of course, some piercing!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
