Color Me Beautiful Challenge 6

Here is this weeks' Color Me Beautiful Challenge.  I needed to take a break from finishing up an order for journals so I played with the colors we were given.  I don't use a lot of pink but I do like the way this one looks.  To check out the Color Me Beautiful Blog, just click on the first photo.

To start, here is the color challenge they gave us.  I love how they present them and they are always so pretty.  I had to use at least three of the colors and the only color I didn't use this time was the Basic Gray.  I've used that color so much lately, that I don't have any of it left.  Guess it's time to order some more as it seems to be popping up a lot in challenges and such.

This is the card I created for this challenge.  As you can see, I love flowers.  I make a lot of flowers as well as stamp a lot of flowers.  I miss the flower garden I once had.  I always had fresh cut flowers all over the house.  Now I get to make paper ones that will last longer.  It's a good substitute.

Stamp Set(s):  Trust God, Language of Friendship; Ink(s):  Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke; Card Stock:  Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette; Accessories & Tools:  Little Leaves Sizzlits, Boho Blossoms Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Dazzling Details, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Crystal Effects

For the vase, I made a circle and trimmed one edge off to give me a straight line.  Yes, I know, the bottom is round so the vase will roll but... it sets in a wrought iron wire hanging basket!  :-)
