Just Us Girls #237 - Color Challenge

Hi all!  As I was scheduling this post last night, I realized today is my birthday!  I knew it was today, but I was just kind of into making this card and getting this post done last night.  So I guess I made this card for me!  LOL!
 
Anyway, the new challenge over at Just Us Girls is a color challenge and it's one of my favorite color combos!  Sue V. chose these colors for us this week!
 
I snuck in some green into my card...I couldn't NOT have green leaves!  I chose to use the Happiness in Bloom set from PTI with pumpkin pie and brilliant blue inks to create the flowers.   I also used these colors and Tim Holtz's spritzer tool on the background.  First time using this tool and it's so cool!   I also impressed the blue piece with the linen impression plate for some texture.    There are enamel dots in the center of the smaller flowers and Wink of Stella shimmer in the flowers and leaves. 
 
I used this week's CAS(E) this Sketch and it also fits the Runway Inspired challenge with the orange, blue, and white. 
 
You can see more fabulous inspiration from the DT at these blogs.
