Cottage Flowers for Color Throwdown #3.

When I first saw these colors (Close to Cocoa, Tempting Turquoise, and Ruby Red) I thought: FALL!! But I needed a birthday card. Then I thought: what am I going to do with this, LOL??? So, here's what I did. I used my Flourishes Damask background stamp and stamped it on all three colors of card stock in the matching color. The base card is Very Vanilla. The image is stamped on water color paper and water colored with reinkers and is up on dimensionals. I had fun with this challenge and I'm happy with the birthday card it became. The envelope is dressed up with a little strip of the stamped Tempting Turquoise paper. Thanks for looking!

Stamps: Flourishes Damask and Lockhart Cottage Flowers; Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Ruby Red and Tempting Turquoise, watercolor paper (Stampin' Up!); Inks: Close to Cocoa, Ruby Red and Tempting Turquoise (Stampin' Up!); Accessories: dimensionals and copper brads (craft store.
