Just a [color combo] note - FTTC #80

It's time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC80)! Silke Ledlow is our challenge host. She is challenging us to a color scheme! This one is not only easy and fun, but the colors are sure to make a beauty. Simply make a card using the four colors of hot pink, soft yellow, Kraft, and black that are listed in the picture and link it here! While Flourishes stamps are not required, if you have them by all mean use them! We would love to see what you create!

OK, if my card seems to be a little familiar, it's because I CASE'd myself! I'll admit to struggling with this color combo. When I think of Flourishes I think of those gorgeous botannicals--beautiful flowers. And I need GREEN for flowers, LOL! So my mojo went on vacation this week--maybe it's the incessant heat, LOL. I went the more is more route with this version. My card base is Kraft, with a layer of Basic Black. Then I stamped the Cherry Blossom image on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. I did color the sepals in a Kraft color since I had no green ;-) Artistic license, yeah, that's what it was! The sentiment is from Tag Lines, a set I just LOVE!!! Gorgeous fonts and classic sentiments. Last thing was to tie some black and tan gingham ribbon around the top. You can't tell from my picture, but I've popped the entire white panel up on foam tape.

Be sure to go see how my team mates used the colors today! I hope you'll play along with us! ~Supplies~
