Analogous Botanical Love Card

I've been wanting to create a card using analogous coloring, so I sat down today and came up with this design.  I am entering it in the  Just Add Ink Inspiration Challenge.  I selected Create a Smile's Botanical Love because of the dot accents on each of the floral images which paired nicely with the circles in the inspiration photo.  The photo also had a flower on the wall and small arrangement on the cubby unit so that reinforced my decision to make a floral card.    I loved the inspiration color scheme and used it in executing my analogous coloring  (Y17 for yellow,  RV4 for the pink, YR2 for the light orange and BG23 for the aqua).

Analogous coloring using Create a Smile Stamps.

 The WPlus9 Doodle Buds sentiment is one of my favorites.  This is going to be a birthday card and there is a birthday sentiment inside.

My card was chosen as "Honorable Mention" by Just Add Ink.  This were the comments they posted: "Here's what some of the design team had to say...

"Seamless colours transitions and bright beautiful colours make this a one layer beauty!"

"The black details and vibrant colours really make this lovely scene pop"

 "Lovely bright flowers, beautifully coloured"

Thanks for stopping by today!
