CS Color Challenge

We are having a color challenge over @ Creative Sketches. The colors: Bashful Blue, Daffodil Delight, and Elegant Eggplant. And here is my card! I used all Stampin' Up! products.
Here is how I made my card: The card itself is Very Vanilla cardstock. I added a top panel of Bashful Blue. I first stamped it with the Sanded background stamp, in Bashful Blue classic ink. I then ran it through the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. (I wanted the panel to have some depth.) I used Whisper White cardstock to create my flower. It is actually cut with the Birds & Bloom die. I sprayed the flower with my Frost White Shimmer Mist and crinkled the flower. I added a Daffodil Delight brad to hold the flower together. I added a scrap piece of cream colored tulle behind the flower to soften it a bit. I used First Edition DSP and my leaves die to create the sprigs of leaves poking out behind the flower. I stamped the butterfly, from Clearly for You stamp set, in Elegant Eggplant classic ink and fussy cut it out. I had a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, so I cut this cute little tag, and stamped 'A NOTE OF THANKS', from the Thank You Kindly stamp set, in Bashful Blue classic ink.
If you have a chance, come play with us over @ Creative Sketches, and give this color challenge a try. You just might surprise yourself, on how easy these colors come together. Upload your creation and insert a hyper link back to your blog! Its just that easy!
