So, I tried it again with color combo # 4 which to my eye looked like two purples and two greens... so, when the card was done and I used green's to mat it, it really made the greens take over I guess. The hydrangea panel is up on pop dots. So, it probably would have popped better on something creamy colored like the watercolor paper. ( maybe next time, I had diecut the lawn fawn scripty hugs from the same wc paper and it looked too pale on the panels so I did scribble some of the same colors from the petals on it. I am not really sure I like it but, at least it looks different than ( all the usual cards of mine) which I guess is the goal. This one is A-7 in real life.

see them all here.) For which I chose #95 the back to school one with the colors of pink, orange, yellow and brown and some how in my head when I went to assemble the card it just looked good on this very pale green. ( that the center of the bloom is ) haha and then after I went back and looked at the list I realized there is no green in that 4 color combo... Such is life, the bloom is on 1/8" pop dots and the frame is on 1/16th" so there is a little depth to this when tilted. and I ended up using the entire 12" sheet to make this base and the framing & mat panels for the bloom. This card is 6" square in real life.
So, these Poppies are also from Sweet n Sassy stamps the Precious Poppies set and they really I did not color over them as many times as the large background versions. The Hey Beautiful is from Paper Smoochies fun and flirty set and it was stamped over the top 2 times with versafine to be bold enough to POP over the background. and this was done inspired by this pretty card in Michele's gallery for the featured stamper challenge today. This is 6" square in real life. so changes were to remove the scallops and ribbon and I flipped the sentiment down to the bottom.
