Keesh's colour challenge

Here I go again with another colour challenge - this time one of Keesh's and the colours we had to use were Regal Rose, Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery. Well it was a challenge for me as I cannot get my head around using pink and orange together!

So to comfort myself with the fact that they REALLY do go together, I chose to make a flower card - can't go wrong then - or can I? Another challenge for me was tying a knot in that drat wide grosgrain ribbon!! I love it but usually get a huge big lumpy bumpy thing but this time it worked out OK!! Anyway I am happy enough with the card to show it on here! And I DO think it is pretty LOL.

The flowers and leaves are raised on Dimensionals and the Stampin' Up! sets I used were Boho Backgrounds and Baroque Motifs and the So Swirly Wheel. The wording is from a retired set called Warmest Regards.

Love it! And I also love the Kristina challenge card also. Yes I didn't get there either this time and have also been toying with the idea of still giving the colours a go.
