CAS-ual Fridays -- CFC21

This week at CAS-ual Fridays the challenge is to pick three shades of the same color and add the color brown to the combo. At first I tried purple and brown and did not like the colors together. I finished the card and left the card on my work table over night. When I returned to my work table the next morning, I decided that I did not like the colors or the card and decided to make a new card in different colors.

Here is the card that I decided to enter into the challenge. I took three different shades of yellow cardstock (Stampin Up) and stamped the flowers with Tsukineko Rich Cocoa ink (the lightest color doesn't show up very well on camera). I added brown ribbon down the middle of the center panel and added scalloped edges. The flowers are from Hero Arts. They are part of the new stamps and Die cut sets that Hero Arts and Sizix are making. The set is called: Playful Flowers and Butterflies 657778. I added glossy accents to the center of the flowers and also to the little dots on the outside of the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate the comments. Have a great day!!
