BC95 - Color Combo Challenge Floral Silhouettes

Happy Friday! - This week was so trying on my nerves.  I screwed up the computer last Thursday and had to have it taken in to be worked on.  I was told it would be back by Tuesday but on Wednesday it still wasn't done and I finally found someone who managed to get the thing fixed (sort of) and back to me.  I have spent the last 2 days reinstalling several programs that were taken off while we had it worked on.  Then today I discover our Camera editing program is not working properly and I have to download a new program which I don't like as well as the old program.  At any rate this is the best I could figure out the program to post my card for the challenge.  - It's always something isn't it!
Our challenge this week was a color combo: (Always Artichoke, Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand and a Neutral of choice if needed.  I decided to just go with the colors as stated.  My card base is Chocolate Chip layered with Sage Shadow that I ran through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot embossing folder. Then ribbon (Seaside Designer - retired SU) was wrapped around the layers.  Then I layered Always Artichoke, Designer Sage Shadow Paper and punched the border with a MS punch.  The flower were stamped with Always Artichoke ink on Sahara Sand card stock and punched out with 1 1/4" Cirlce Punch then layered on 1 3/8" circles of textured Chocolate Chip cs.  The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip and punched out with the word window punch.  I added 2 Always Artichoke brads.
That's it for this card, pretty easy card but I like the way it turned out. - Now check out the other members blogs to see how they used these colors.  You can do so by clicking on the Blogger's Icon on my sidebar.  Have a wonderful weekend.
