Color Throwdown #331

Good morning friends~ Today's card was made using the color palette from Color Throwdown.

I had a couple ideas going through my head when I saw the challenge picture.
My first card uses the tulip image from PTI's Friendship Jar ~ Spring.

I colored the tulips in with my copics and added some Glossy Accents to the tips of some of the petals and leaves to make them look like water droplets. I stamped the woodgrain from MFT onto my kraft panel. After cutting a large circle out of the center with Spellbinders Circles, I added some printed paper behind the tulips. The banner is called Layered Banner Banter from PTI.

My next card uses some printed paper and the layered heart doily from Top Dog Dies. the flowers are cut using Pretty Petals, also from Top Dog Dies. The leaves are from MFT, Layered Leaves.

As I was going through my picture files I came across this card that I made recently and the colors were perfect for this challenge as well.

The branches are from Out On A Limb from PTI. The flowers from Embroidered Blossoms (PTI) were stamped first in white and then in Raspberry Fizz, but offset. The leaves are from WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals. I added some deep pink stickles to the centers of each flower. More center detail was added to the flowers using a colored pencil.
I'm also entering these cards into the following challenges:

Thanks so much for visiting! Blessings~ Birgit

All three of these are beautiful! I love how you used the colors with the kraft on each one.

These are all great cards. I love the wood grain effect on the first card and the second card has a really neat flower and the heart is so pretty(I think this could be for a man too). The last card is so delicate and I love how you created the flowers
