CAS Flower

As it's a lovely Spring day today, I went summery with my card for the challenges at Freshly Made Sketches and Dynamic Duos.  Even though I'm not a fan of orange, I do quite like Tangerine Tango.  How come then, that I never use it?



Because I wanted to keep my card light, I went with Bakers Twine rather than the panel across the top.  I used the Blossom Builder Punch and Build a Blossom set to make the flower.  I realize that in nature green flowers with an orange center would be a rare sight, but I took some artistic license here LOL.  



Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):

Stamps:  Build a Blossom; Signature Greetings (PTI)
Cardstock:  Whisper White; Brights DSP
Ink:  Old Olive; Tangerine Tango
Accessories:  White Bakers Twine; Blossom Builder Punch; MFT Fishtail Flags Die

Cheers
Karren

Edited to Add:  This card was chosen as one of the Dynamic Darlings this week.  Thanks, guys!
