Check Out the Celebration at Color Throwdown

Color Throwdown is celebrating their 100th Challenge with great prizes.... almost $1700 worth of prizes are up for grabs. Go to their blog here for all the details on their challenge, contest, and prizes.
I made this card for my entry into their 100th challenge.
I stamped flowers using regal rose on 2 of the flowers and red on the middle one. Ended up stamping 2 of the flowers a second time and cut them out and attached with pop up dots to give more dimension.  For more texture, I embossed the blue mat and highlighted the raised areas with green ink.
Stamp: Hero Arts-"A Real Candytuft"
            SU "Joy"
Ink: SU Regal Rose
       Memento Ladybug Red
       Memento New Sprouts
Papers: SU Pattern Paper (scallop oval mat)
             GKD Ocean Mist (mat)
             Creme de Menthe (base card)
Ribbon: SU Certainly Celery Color
Stick On Label: SU oval label that I stamped with "Joy"
Cuttlebug: EF Leafy Branches
Nesties: Oval and Scallop Oval

Good luck if you participate in  the Color Throwdown Celebration!
