Color Dare #7

This week I chose to use Mojo Monday's Sketch #248 along with Color Dare #7.  It wasn't too challenging this week to use 2 of the 3 secondary colors for the color dare.  I love green and purple together!

For this card, I used D1510 - 4 My Friend, stamp set.  Z1383 sweet leaf ribbon, and the Cricut CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge for the green frame, the flower, and leaves.  I chose Topiary, Sweet Leaf, and Gypsy for my secondary colors.  Originally I tried using Lilac Mist for my card base, but I decided that white looked better in the background.  I also used the Cuttlebug for creating a pattern on the background.  It's hard to tell in the picture, but the Topiary frame is actually raised up using foam tape, which made it a little hard for me to focus on the sentiment.  Overall, I'm pretty pleased with the final card.  It ended up being 5"x7" and so three-dimensional, you would have to deliver these Congrats in person!

Here's the original sketch:
It's a pretty literal interpretation!
