Lovely Field Flowers

I've got another retiring flower set to feature today, so here's Field Flowers:

I really want to not like Blushing Bride (I preferred Pretty in Pink) but it keeps showing up in color challenges and then I have to begrudgingly admit that it looks okay and that makes me slightly grumpy.  But I love the Perfect Plum and Wild Wasabi so only a little grumpy.  The colors are courtesy of Color Throwdown:

And the sketch is from Fab Friday:

I challenged myself to make this card in 20 minutes yesterday before I had to leave the house for a haircut appointment (it took 22, so not too far off).  If I'd taken more time then I would have spent more time thinking about the layer placement--I just don't like where that Blushing Bride layer ended up on my card.  For the rest of it though, I think it ain't half-bad for such a fast card!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Cheers, peeps!

Well, I like it. I think the colors are gorgeous together and the stamp set is so neat -- very detailed and kind of looks like pictures from an old botany book, you know? Coolness!!!

I totally agree on Blushing Bride. Not my favorite shade.
I have loved everything you've made with this set- I so should have gotten it! :)

Well done on that color combo! It works well with Field Flowers...don't stress over the BB layer; looks great to me! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
