Color Dare #237 ~ Lagoon, Tangerine, Thistle with White

It's Friday so the Design Team at Color My Heart has a new palette to challenge you. This week we're asking you to create with Lagoon, Tangerine, Thistle and White. Please do not add any new colors to this palette. However, if you don't have the exact colors listed you may substitute something close. 

I really loved a card created by Jody Gustafson and felt this would be a great color dare to put my spin on it. Thanks for the inspiration Jody.

I stamped a background on the card front above the line where the papers would be. On scrap cardstock I stamped the large flower and some leaves. Notice the striped effect on the leaves? To get that effect I inked the leaf on the stamp pad then wiped it across the pad before stamping. It creates a really nice effect so give it a try! Assembly was easy and I ended up with this really cute card!
