Thank you

I started making today's card with the color combo from Color My Heart Color Dare in mind:

I love Gypsy and I love Buttercup but I just can't imagine how to put them together.  They are spring/summer colors so I wanted to see how I can tone down the brightness of the colors.  I decided that I will use quite a bit of neutral colors, and I thought of the For Always paper pack.  With a sketch from Make It From Your Heart Volume 2, I knew that I would use the B&T from the paper pack, then use Gypsy and Buttercup cardstock.  I was going to use Sketch 19 but because I want to show the flower on the B&T paper, I have turned it upside down.  I made the roses from Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge then the fun part was to pick a stamp for the panel.  I have chosen one of my favorite sentiments from Avonlea Card Making Workshop on the Go:

Before I stuck down everything, I had used the background stamp from the set to fill the background of the card.  I used second generation stamping, so it is really subtle but it did make the card more complete.

My card is entering the following challenges:
