The Challenge 68-Fabulous Florals Thank You

The Challenge is back with a new challenge!  Next up in our challenge rotation is a color combination.  It's a bright, bold one featuring hot pink, green, teal, and yellow.  I paired the colors with the current layout at Match the Sketch for this floral thank you design.

Fabulous Florals Thank You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Avery Elle
I used Avery Elle's Fabulous Florals stamps and dies to create a colorful cluster of blooms for my focal image.  The flowers and leafy branch were stamped in a mix of bold pigment inks and cut with the matching dies.  I used a pink patterned paper panel for a background.  I paired it with a piece of a cheery yellow polka dotted stitched rectangle that's been sitting on my desk for ages and a section of a teal circle.  Once the background pieces were in place, I added on the flowers, using foam tape to add dimension to pieces of the grouping.  The "thank you" sentiment was stamped in black ink on a green cardstock strip.  I tucked the stamped strip beneath the flowers.  The pink panel was adhered to a teal mat, then set on a coordinating pink card base.  

Check out what the rest of the talented team at The Challenge has created based on this week's color combination.  Here's where to find them:
