Simon Says Challenge - a colour combo

I'm this weeks featured guest designer for Simon Says Challenge and the challenge this week is a colour combo of pink, apple green, yellow and orange. Oh dear!! I so don't do a lot of colours on one card - three has been my max I think so I really struggled with this card. In the end I found these MME papers (conveniently omitted the pink lol) and the card was done.

I used one of my DT sets from Simon Says Stamp, I stamped the image out three times so I could 3D the flowers for more depth. After painting the flowers with distress inks I added some glamour dust for a bit of bling.

I didn't manage to get the inside decorated, and probably won't get back to doing that till next week if I am to get everything done that needs to be done by the end of the week. I feel like a card-making conveyor belt lately.

Recipe:
Stamps: All from the You make the flowers smile set from Simon Says Stamp
Papers: MME
Tools: Nestibilities, Martha Stewart Scallop punch from The Hobby House
