Love the colors for this week's Color Throwdown #350.  Played around with my Zig watercolors and finally decided on tea rose and light pink for the flower and mid-green and olive green for the leaves.  Just stamped the flower with waterproof ink and blended the colors directly - no water.  Had the striped vellum on my desk from a previous card so just went with basically the same design.

The mum is from PTI Year of the Flowers series which I have not used for a long time.  I will add "birthday" or "anniversary" or whatever on the inside when I need the card.  A few clear sequins completed the card.

Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments.  Betty
