OTWC Challenge #46

While I was working on a card for one of the STV release challenges, I realized that the colors were perfect for Kim's color challenge this week at Off The Wall Craftiness. I have not gotten over to do a challenge at Kim's site for quite some time, and I sure miss her gorgeous inspiration pieces. I was a wee bit confused as it did not seem that her listed colors matched the inspiration photo, so after making a second card, I went with the colors she chose. I was seeing a peachy orange. Here they are, she wanted red.
I used 3 Pure Luxury card stocks in the colors Lipstick Red, Turquoise Sea, and Lemon Drop. I did use some layering weight white. Yes, Nesties were used for my circular shape. The stamps I used are from Theresa Momber's set called Aloha. I sponged using Ridinghood Red, Crushed Curry, and Taken with Teal ink, from Stampin Up!. Flowers were colored using Copics and colored pencils. For accents, I used ribbon form Cosmo Cricket, and gems from Recollections.

Thanks for taking a look!
