A colorful challenge

There's a new challenge on the Passion for Papertrey blog. This time they came up with a colorful challenge using this colorscheme...

I was immediately inspired since I've seen this wonderful Christmas Poinsettia over at Nichole's blog.
So when my new stash arrived thursday afternoon I started digging in my box searching for the package with the stamp set which included the dies. (Don't you love the way the PTI goodies come in? Every stamp set in a piece of paper and one package has all the dies... And the way the buttons are on top, smiling at you and scream: grab me, grab me!!)

I die cut 2 large flowers and 2 medium ones out of Mellon Berry felt and 2 leaves out of Simply Chartreuse felt and stitched them like Nichole did.
Since I like it quick and easy I punched a small hole with my Crop-a-dile and stuck them together with a brad. On top is a Simply Chartreuse button.

Then I cut a piece of Vintage Cream cardstock and I used my Music Sheet impression plate with an Angled Label die to create the embossed card front. The sentiment is stamped in Stazon Timber Brown and is from the new Christmas Poinsettia stamp set.
Finally I adhered the front on a card of Dark Brown cardstock.

Thank you ladies for the challenge and the inspiration!
