Kwernerdesign's 50th Color Challenge

Kristina Werner has posted her 50th color challenge on her blog this week. She comes up with some great combinations and always has fun, inspiring picture to go along with it. I really love what she came up with for her 50th!
At first I just stamped the flowers on this card, but I really wanted them to pop out, so I stamped then on colored cardstock (with chocolate chip ink--no black ink allowed for this challenge). Then I cut them out and adhered them with dimensionals. A small layer of chocolate chip cardstock behind them makes them stand out even more.
The textured/swirled white cardstock is layered on white. I love doing this. It makes such a crisp, clean card.
And here it is:
All supplies SU:
Set: Friends Always
Cardstock: White, chocolate chip, real red, tempting turquoise, summer sun
Ink: real red, chocolate chip
Accessories: Big Shot texture plate, dimensionals
