Well how about these colors for a color challenge ! CR84FN is throwing this one out to us this week....

I know I have never used these three colors together before, but I really like how it all turned out.

This is a hodge podge of a bunch of brands, sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't !

I found that Michael's is now selling a book of "plastic paper", which is what I used behind the sentiment. It doesn't cut very well with die cuts, but close enough that I could scissor the rest out. That was also run through the cuttlebug. I found I was holding onto a lot of old packaging in order to reuse it for just this sort of thing, but this paper is much easier to work with.

The flower is just a bunch of loose petals and a circle punch that I already had laying about the place, so I inked them and mashed them together with a brad.

Had a lot of fun making this one, hope you like it !
