OWH Midweek Throwdown Challenge

Today on Operation Write Home they have a Midweek Throwdown Challenge!! This cute little pillow was our inspiration!!! I used the colors and one of the flowers as my inspiration!!!
 I immediately thought of  the 'Pretty Amazing' stamp set from SU! when I saw the two big flowers in red.

 

 
 
I did attempt to make my own background paper using different stamps; using flowers and the colors from the pillow....but I didn't like how it turned out,so I made this card. I used mainly the greens,pinks and the dark brown from the pillow and the one flower that's reddish pink on the corners of the pillow!! Well,here's the deets on the card...thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

 
Recipe for card:
  •  Card stocks: Certainly Celery,WW,Early Espresso,Regal Rose, and Rose Red
  • Cuttle Bug Folders: Swiss Dots,Textile,Floral Fantasy
