Color Inspiration #50

First of all~
A great BIG congratulations to Kristina Werner on her 50th Color Challenge!

WOW, quite an accomplishment! Thank you so much for all of your creative inspiration, your fabulous tutorials and of course, these color challenges. You have pushed me out of my "pastel box" into a world of color.
I had to get my card posted for this challenge before it hits the 1000 entry mark!
Kristina was very specific about using just these 5 colors. Sooooo, here it is brocken down by color:
Brown - Two of the butterflies punched from "Candy Corn" card stock from American Crafts; inked the daisy stamp (by artist, Lisa Hindsley) with Stampabilities "Chocolate Brown" and the computer printed words are in Brown ink from my Epson color photo printer; the brown and turquoise dotted ribbon is from "Scrapbooking Printed Ribbon" from Target.
Yellow - the cardstock banner under the 3 squares on top of the card, the bling on each butterfly and used yellow Stickles on the centers of the daisies
Turquoise - The 3 squares and the oval frame are cut from my DCWV "Citrus Stack"(a bunch of the sheets have GLITTER on 'em~so pretty).
Red - Had a bit of trouble adding this color but, found the right card stock for one of the butterflies in my DCWV Mat Stack- it's also embossed with Swiss Dot.
White - card stock from 'The Paper Company' is my base card.
Other supplies used include 1 1/4" square punch from Paper Shapers, oval scallop punch from Marvy, butterfly punch is Martha Stewart's and the corner rounder punch is EK Success.
Thank you so much for looking ~ I really really appreciate your comments ~ have a great day!
