Color Blocking and the Color Coach

When I saw the Stampin' Addicts sketch challenge last week, I had an idea pop into my head and for once, I really feel like what I envisioned is what ended up happening on the card.  I decided to use Shelli's Creative Challenge for this month once again to come up with my color combination.  If you want to check out SASC 64 over at Stampin' Addicts, you can see it HERE.

My color combination came from the back of the Concord Crush card in the Color Coach.  It is Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait.  You can see in the close-up (you'll want to click on it to enlarge it) that I actually sponged the edges of the punched flowers to give them a little more depth.

I hope you like the card!
