So....what do you think?!! Colors used were: Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, Old Olive, and Taken with Teal....and we could use a bit of Whisper White or Very Vanilla. When I first read about this, all I could think of was...YUK! (Sorry, Lisa!) So, can you see why I had such a difficult time?
This card features a flower from the SU Pretties Kit....all the flowers come in white so that they can be customized to suit the creator. In this case, I used the Aqua Brush and some Pumpkin Pie ink to color it. Layered a smaller flower** that very closely matches Taken with Teal and a Green Crystal Brad from the Ice Collection.
Stamps: Sanded, Canvas, Warmest Regards*
Inks: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie
CS: Taken with Teal, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Misc: Wide Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Green Crystal Brad, Pumpkin Pie Ink, Aqua Brush, Flowers from Pretties Kit, Rose Red Designer Paper, Large Glue Dot

As you can see, I've taken a couple of liberties with the original sketch, but I'm truly happy with the finished card! Beate's sketch and her card were designed to fit into a smaller envelope, and I chose to eliminate the side embellishments. I know you cannot see, but the Glitter Pen was used to highlight portions of the background swirls and the butterflies.
Thanks for stopping by!
