Color challenge (for Ellen Hutson)

Hi there!

I have a pretty card to share today, made with goodies from the Ellen Hutson store.  I created a card using this color palette as my inspiration:

I just want to say, I am terrible with colors. I had to keep asking my daughter if the colors I was choosing were a match. At the end of it, she threw her hands up and said "good enough." ha.

You'll let me know what you think:

I used Neat and Tangled's Friendly Florals set, and fit together not only the flower clusters but some of the extra blooms to create a fullness around the cut-out (especially at the top.)

I used the new Avery Elle watercolors to paint a background on the base layer, and then used Neat and Tangled's Hello Winter to heat-emboss the greeting in the middle.

I flecked lighter and darker inks over the purple/blue watercolored background, and added white gel pen highlights to the flowers.

I hope you like my take on the color board inspiration! Thanks for stopping by!
