Just Us GirlS 16 - color challenge

I had so much fun with the last 'Just Us GirlS' challenge, that I decided to play along, again. This challenge is a color challenge. The colors are Burgundy, Blush, Vanilla, and Gray. SO, here is what I came up with. My card base is made with Bravo Burgundy card stock (Stampin' Up!). I inked my very vintage jumbo wheel (SU) with Bravo Burgundy classic ink (SU), and ran it along the left hand side of the card. I ran my Blush Blossom card stock (SU) with my top note die. I trimmed off about a third. I used the words from the Life's Creation clear stamp set, and Inked them with bravo burgundy classic ink. I stamped the words onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock (SU) and matted it onto a piece of Basic Gray card stock (SU). I used pop-dots to give the matted word piece some lift off the card. I stamped this straight long 'flourish' (life's creation clear stamp set) with Bravo Burgundy classic ink. I used the two different flower sizes from the vintage vogue stamp set (SU). I inked the larger of the two in bravo burgundy classic ink. I inked the smaller of the two in blush blossom classic ink. I cut them out. I used the new very vanilla brads (SU) to give the flowers a center. I fiddled with the flower's petals to give them some 'shape'. I used a slot punch (SU) to create a pass threw for the ribbon's knot. I used very vanilla 5/8" grosgrain ribbon (SU).
Thanks so much for looking!
