Kindness - CR84FN Color Challenge

Hi everyone! Today I have a card for the CR84FN Color Challenge.  When I saw these yummy colours I just had to join in.  I had already made some flowers in the challenge colours, so I set to work making the other elements for my card.
After inking my embossing folder with aurora pigment ink by Brilliance, I used the faux letterpress technique to emboss and ink my base layer card.  The colours of the inkpad are identical to the challenge colours, so that made life easy.
The stamps I used are the 'Kindness' set by JustRite. After stamping and cutting my label out, I cut two more mats and mounted my sentiment label on to those.

I added some pearls which I coloured pink to match, then finished off with a colour co-ordinated seam binding bow, my flowers and some punched leaves. The leaves were stamped with script then coloured with shabby shutters ink. I finished off the bottom of my card with a Martha Stewart punch.

Products Used...
White card base 
Basil card stock - lemon, pink and peach
Sizzix embossing folder
JustRite Stamps - Kindness
Brilliance - aurora pigment ink
Tim Holtz distress ink - shabby shutters
Spellbinders Labels Twenty
Pink and lemon seam binding
Martha Stewart punch
Thank you for stopping by

I'm loving these colours how you've used them Sasha! The faux letterpress bkgd is so effective...... I just get in a pickle when I try that technique :0(
Marie's term ' mouthwatering' is spot on..... I'm reminded of the fizzy sweets called Refreshers with these colours :0)
