Yellow Blossoms CCMC510, TSOT, CC&S272

Hey there stampers!  It's Thursday again and that means it's time for a new Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  It's sketch week this time.  CC&M will hosting some different challenges in June, so stay tuned for that!  
I also used Try Stampin' on Tuesday's Tic-Tac-Tuesday #3.  I chose to go diagonal with green, blue, and stripes.  I was also excited about the colors from CAS Colours and Sketches #272 and worked my card around those!  Have you ever looked at colors for a color challenge and are sure you've got it right only later to find out that your were wrong?  Well, that's what I did here.  I was sure the yellow was Daffodil Delight and not So Saffron, so my card is made with Daffodil Delight instead.  Whoops!

I played with the no-line watercoloring technique for this card.  I stamped two of the flowers from Birthday Blossoms in Sahara Sand ink on watercolor paper and colored them with Daffodil Delight ink and my aqua painter.  Birthday Blossoms is on the retiring list as well as Brushstrokes, the stamp I used for the striped background.  The Sahara Sand dots are from Petal Palette.  
The Pacific Point panel is embossed with the Basket Weave TEF.

To finish the card off, I added some paper doily on each side of the flower bunch and a linen thread bow.

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
