Flopsey's Flowers--Color Throwdown #38

It's another Color Throwdown day--#38!!! I have so much fun with these challenges! This week our hostess with the mostess is Broni Holcombe. Broni chose Basic Gray, Ruby Red, and Baja Breeze for her colors.

I must admit these colors were giving me some trouble until I remembered Flopsey!!! Flopsey saved the day!!! Three cheers for Flopsey! Don't you just LOVE him? Look at that sweet little face!!!

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Basic Gray, Baja Breeze, and Muirfield DSP. The next element is Basic Gray, Ruby Red, and Whisper White with the Posy backgrounder stamped in Ruby Red and on top of that is a strip of Basic Gray. The focal image is from MFTs newest Flopsey release, Flopsey's Flowers. I stamped it three times on Gina K Pure Luxury 80 lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored one entire image with Copic markers (see below) and only the flowers twice. I cut the flowers out and layered one on Flopsey's bouquet and added one to the Basic Gray strip, both of them popped up on 3M foam squares. The sentiment is from MFT Sassy Sayings and was stamped on Whisper White with Ruby Red, punched out with a 1" punch and layered on a 1 3/8" Basic Gray punch out. Three pewter brads accent the lower edge.
