CTD #95

LeAnne gave us the fabulous color combination of Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, Green Galore and Black for today's Color Throwdown #95. I love dramatic color combinations, so I knew this card would come together quickly for me.
I used a new Tim Holtz texture fades embossing folder for the background, then used SU! dies for the flowers and stems. I added some matching ribbons and gemstones, and punched the sentiment with SU!'s word window and fancy label punches. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado.
I actually found some stamping time this afternoon, so stay tuned:)
