Challenge card with Flower Filled!

Yesterday my upline Karen put me to the challenge of making a card using the sketch of this card which belongs to her friend Nichole. I was determined to try myself out too with another Stampin' Up! colour combo so decided on pink and grey. Then was the problem of what to put with them! It had to be a darker colour so went for the Not Quite Navy. The contrast colour really had me stumped until I remembered a lovely card I saw using the Neighborbood Wheel and my colours. The other colour was More Mustard so I went with it.

I would love to read what others think about this colour combo as I am still not too sure about the mustard in there!

Karen's card can be seen here - lovely as hers always are and such a contrast to mine! This is the interesting thing about sketch challenges - so many different ways of interpreting them!

As I am not sure who originally designed the little basket using the SU round tab punch and the two oval punches, I cannot give them credit but it is such a cute idea! The flowers each have a little faux jewel in their centres.

Jean, I like how you highlighted the embossing. Did you achieve this with chalk or something else?
