Just Us Girls #289 Color Challenge!

Hello there!  I have not had a real creative streak going lately, but I wouldn't miss a Just Us Girls challenge!  Lisa has a good one for us this week!  See the graphic below and then head to our BLOG for tons of inspiration! You don't want to miss that!



 So I've had this stamp since PTI came out with their Friendship Jar and Jar Fillers! I love them, but haven't used them nearly as much as I should have! This card is a birthday card for our hostess, and my good friend, Lisa!  She looooves her peaches and orange, and brown, too!
 I stamped the tulips on watercolor paper in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I had fun painting with reinkers from SU.  I used Certainly celery and kiwi kiss on the leaves.  the tulips are apricot appeal (a color that should NOT have been retired!) and pumpkin pie. Lisa will have to forgive me for the green as an added color-flowers NEEd green leaves!
I gave my flowers and leaves a touch of Stardust Stickles (another thing Lisa loves) and tied the peach crinkly seam binding around.  My layers are cut with an MFT blueprints kit (I forget the number) and Cross Stitched Frame Borders (Memory Box).  There is sponging on the edges of the layers.  Pretty simple card really.
I hope Lisa likes it 'cause her birthday is Sunday!!
Thanks for coming by! Please join us this week in this great color challenge! You have so much freedom to use a color you love with neutrals!  Link your creation up by Thursday, April 23 at 9 pm ET!

Hello your card is so beautiful, I am getting back into the crafting world and I would like to reconnect with some of the blogs and friends that visited my blog/page.
