A Rose is a Rose

Two cool new challenges hit the scene this week - Fab Friday and Colour Me Beautiful.  Unfortunately, I missed the deadline for Colour Me Beautiful but as I got the color inspiration from there, I'm linking their site anyway.

For my card, I went for a lot of white space on my card and pulled out an old Stampin' Up! set called A Rose is a Rose.  I used Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum for the rose and Lucky Limeade stamped full strength, then stamped off for the leaves.  I stamped the sentiment using Basic Gray, so managed to get in 4 of the 5 colors from the challenge.

I'm really liking Perfect Plum and Lucky Limeade together - two colors I probably wouldn't have considered pairing up.

Here are the challenge details:

Thanks for looking.
