The Sisterhood of Crafters Color Inspiration Challenge

I just recently found The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge site.  For the current challenge we are to use the following colors as inspiration for our project:

Isn't this color palette gorgeous?!  

For my card, I sponged distress inks onto the smooth side of Ranger Watercolor paper.  I'm really enjoying the Bokeh technique so went with sponging white circles over the inked background, letting the white craft ink dry and then stamped the Stampabilities Waving Wheat image with green ink in the corner.  I embellished using Martha Stewart orange daisies from my stash and popping some enamel dots into the center of each flower.  MayArts fabric leaves embellish under the flowers.  Martha Stewart Butterfly punches were used to also embellish the card front.  I'm pretty sure I covered each color from the inspiration picture!

This fun challenge can be found HERE.
