Color Inspiration #4

I LOVE the colors in Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Round-Up #4!
Very Vanilla, Tempting Turquoise, Taken with Teal, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa.

I chose to limit the palett to Very Vanilla, Tempting Turqoise, Old Olive & Chocolate Chip - some of my all-time favorite SU! Colors!! The Inspiration for this week's colors came from a picture in the latest West Elm catalog:

Here's what I came up with... I used a piece of Old Olive from the Summer Picnic DSP with a strip of the new twill ribbon (LOVE IT) as the anchor. I stamped the large image from the One of a Kind stamp set with versamark ink on Tempting Turquoise cardstock, then embossed with clear embossing powder. I used my craft knife to cut out the image and my fingers to slightly curl up the tips of the petals. The "Best Wishes" sentiment is from the Short & Sweet stamp set. Lastly, the main piece of Very Vanilla cardstock is up on dimensionals and so is the turquoise flower, giving the 4x4 card lots of depth. Hope you like it!
