Color Challenge Combo 5 (Stamp Shack)

This is a sampling of the colors used for this challenge. I just thought to my self what color do you never use. ( which is peach) ( I'm not really big on blue either) so it was interesting to me to find they looked nice together. then i found the Cosmo cricket paper in my stash with the brown and that cinched the deal.
These are the sample cards i made up for the stamp shack's color combo challenge 5. I didnt post them where when posted them in the shack as, My mom peeks at this blog... ( and her b-day was last week)
The Wreath Stamp is PSX K-1882 from 1996 and is stamped in Memories Chestnut ink on the robins nest watercolor hammered pp. The Just because is from Savvy Stamps, It was punched with an yellow marvy scallop rectangle, then i cut the rectangles off and mounted it with a brown bazzill scrap. there is some pale blue stickles where the berries ( hips?) would be on the wreath. The ribbon is from May arts and the mini brads are from lasting impressions, this card is 6 inches square in real life.
This card I have sent out for my Mom's birthday she loves Poppies, ( and she should have gotten it by now) the image is from Stampendous and stamped 3 times along the bottom of a scrap of the blue pp from the card above. The sentiment is from SU and has some creamy brown fluid chalk ink on the edges. The ribbon i think is from Wal-mart? the centers of the poppies have a bit of diamond glaze in the centers. This one is also 6 inches square.
Something way our of my comfort zone, i received this owl stamp (for free from an lss) and the peach pp is the backside of the Cosmo cricket from the cards above. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado. both are stamped with the memories Chestnut dye ink. the sheer organdy ribbon is from Offray and the ruffled is from May Arts. there is a bit of stickles and liquid pearls on the owl. ( I drew the tree branch trunk with the brush end of an tombo marker) this ones about 5 something by 6 in real life.
I have some other cards i have made this week and not posted and will put them in as their own post.

I love that owl_I just got one last weekend by Hero ARts but it's no where as cute as yours. Your moms popy card is a stunner!
