Flower Silouette

What are your favorite combos??? This is one of my favorites this spring. It is Cool Carribean, Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, and a nice hit of Orange! I started with the flower then masked it and stamped the Impress BG with Dune colored chalk ink. I inked the flower as a guide in the bottom corner then cut it out with an exacto knife to create a silouette. This draws your eye from the main flower down to the bottom right. I matted it on the underside with Chocolate Chip. I inked a small center portion of that same flower in Dune ink and lightly stamped it on the choc. chip cs. Pulled a small piece of cocoa ribbon through the back. Inked the MSE sentiment in choc. chip craft ink and topped it off with lemon colored liquid pearls. Would love to hear your fav. color combos in your comments!

Great card! I don't do much SU but my favorite color combination is pretty much anything and brown, preferably a chocolate brown.

Very cool card! I love how the stem of the flower curves up from the side of the card. My favorite color combo lately, is true thyme, cranberry crisp, and blush blossom!

I really like your card. It has a lot of detail without looking overdone. My favorite colors change a lot but I like certainly celery ,cameo coral and always apricot together.
