Color Challenge

This card was created for a team color challenge.
We were challenged to use the following CTMH colors:
Pondersoa Pine
Colonial White

I must admit I was feeling very challenged by this combination until I just started playing around with my stamps.
I never would have paired Goldrush and Lagoon but I am loving all the team examples that have been posted.
I started by stamping a repeat background design on the main panel.
I used the small doily from the Lollydoodle WOTG Cardmaking Kit.
To tie the colors together I sprayed it with some Lagoon Re-inker in a Spray Pen.
Then I stamped the large and smaller flower in from the Jubilee 
Scrapbooking WOTG.  The leaves are from that set too.  
I added a floral center from the Skylark Assortment set.
A bit of Teal Shimmer Trim for sparkle and a bit of Baker's Twine and it felt finished.
Here is a close up of the cluster.
I love our team challenges because it pushed me to try things I would not have thought of like this color combo which I have grown to appreciate.

OMWORD, this is absolutely stunning, Lynn! I don't know if I would have thought of that color combo, either, but it is gorgeous! And your stamping is spectacular! One of my all-time top faves of yours!
