Color Me Beautiful #6

Hello Stampers!  I'm so excited to show the card I made for the Color Me Beautiful Color Challenge. When I first saw the color scheme, my first reaction was "Those are hard colors to use" and then didn't think about it.  Until the other night when the thought came to me in my sleep, does that ever happen to you?  My thought was to use the beautiful rose from the Papaya Collage stamp set.  Can you believe this was the first time I inked that image! Below is the color scheme.

Once I started inking the image I realized how beautiful the colors are.  They work great for any two-step stamping or creating definition. I stamped the leaf in Always Artichoke then colored it in with Certainly Celery.  The rose is stamped with Regal Rose then colored in with Pink Pirouette.  It came out so pretty.

I made the card a gate fold card using a 12x12 piece of card stock.  The base of the card is in Regal Rose layered with Basic Gray and Basic Gray dsp. I really like how the card came out and these colors as well.  I also stamped the inside of the card with the foliage stamp image. 

Well friends, I better call it a night, my internet is acting up. I'll be back later this week with another card.  Have a good night!
