I ended up using all the colors in the grid plus black and white. I love how this turned out! It reminds me of looking out a window into a garden. The stamp set is called Floral Borders and comes with a positive and negative border of flowers plus some small accents and sentiments. Just looking at the stamp set it cries out tons of ideas! Each floral border is almost 6" long so as you can tell I only used a section of the image for this card. This is just a reminder you can use all or part of an image! I colored the image using a water brush and ink from the lid of the stamp pad, BUT the dark blue flowers were colored using our Sapphire Shimmer Brush. The other flowers were given some shimmer too with our Clear Shimmer Brush. It just gives a nice subtle sparkle to whatever you use it on. I used our Stitched Rectangle Thin Cut Dies to cut out the floral layer and agin in Pewter cardstock for the frame. The banners are a nice finish to the frame don't you think?

Now it's your turn to create and share. Remember to use only colors in the grid or that are a very close match. Off you go......
