I spent a lot of time with the colors of the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge this week.
The colors and Wild Wasabi, Peekaboo Peach, and Tangerine Tango. I had all of the cardstock colors and ink pads, but deciding on the flowers was the difficult part. I created at least three different kinds of flowers, then decided on these anemone flowers and leaves.
I used the set Anemone Wishes by Gina K Designs along with the matching dies. These flowers were stamped in Tangerine Tango on peach cardstock, then embossed with clear embossing powder. Sometimes I stamped with Versamark ink over the Tangerine ink, but other times I did not. I used my MISTI to get clear impressions. The centers are stamped in Black Onyx ink by Gina K Designs, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I added more color with the peach and a water pen. Since this is regular cardstock, the water was very light.
The cardstock is Tangerine Tango as a base, Basic Black to bring out the black in the greeting and the centers, and Hobby Lobby White.
I enjoyed this challenge. As I said, I created many flowers, so one of these days when I need one or two, I will pull those out and use them.

Lisa, this is a great card! Sounds like you have a garden to choose from, now. The flowers are beautiful.
Great name for that orange. Tango is such an expressive dance.
