This is for Color Challenge 424 - Primrose Petals, Whisper White and Cameo Coral. Cameo Coral? That one was a mystery to me until I looked it up and saw that it's been retired. No matter, I think I came up with a fair approximation. My focal image was stamped using Distress Markers on glossy paper (yes, green, but you have to have leaves with flowers!), then die cut into an oval and layered on two layers of Nesties Labels Five. My BG is the Rose Lace Cover-A-Card (dessert!) in Soft Cantaloupe Shadow Ink on PTI Melon Berry CS (And I think it looks sort of like Cameo Coral as far as I could tell from what my monitor showed). My lace strip served as my "seconds" for dessert. Added a tiny paper bow and three flowers stamped in Memories Unicorn on Primrose Petals, mounted all on a PTI Antique Linen base and that's all she wrote.
This combo had me flummoxed at first. Pink and orange! But I managed to work with it (by my usual route of bending the rules...) and I'm satisfied with how it came out.
Thanks for looking!

Really pretty card Rachel! You did a fantastic job of combining all the colors into "gorgeousness"! I love how you layered your flower with the printed nestie and added that sweet bow on top. The lace border (I love dessert so I'm glad you included seconds..lol) and the corner flowers are lovely accents!

Rachel, you are so funny! And I agree with you and this color combo. I didn't think it would be so hard, but it took me way longer than I expected to create my card. I tried several different ideas but they were just not looking right-ugh! I'm still not 100% on board with my card, but I did my best. Your coloring is beautiful on this pretty card, and I adore that bow and the printed paper is really classy~
