September Colour Challenge - MTDS

I've never entered a crafty challenge before...I always feel a bit intimidated by all those amazingly talented crafters out there but sometimes I think I should do things that push me outside my comfort zone.  So I am taking the plunge...well dipping my toes in first!
To enter the Make the Day Special September Colour Challenge, I had to choose a minimum of 3 colours from one of the palettes given.  There were some pink shades, but I decided to use grays, black and yellows as they aren't usually colours I use when making a card.

So here is my card.....
I have used a set called Blanket Stitched Blooms by WPlus9 and Bee Mine by Lawn Fawn both of which I have had for a while

I have used a set called Blanket Stitched Blooms by WPlus9 and Bee Mine by Lawn Fawn both of which I have had for a while.
I used Copics to colour in the flowers after I had cut them out with my Big Shot using the dies that match the stamp set.  I stuck these to some black AC Card and cut around the top edge.  I then adhered this to a white card base and stamped the bee and dotted heart line & then adhered it all to some White Linen Card.  I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto black and yellow card and then mounted them using some SU Stampin' dimensionals.
Back on Friday.  Thanks for stopping by :-)
