3 for 1 challenge

I am just lovin this layout, I think I need to make another!!!! well here was my thought behind this card. I wanted to pull the colors from the room in the IC113 pictures at SCS. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=81374&d=1201926458 and I wanted it to follow the WSC33 over at Beate's. http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/ I also wanted something "pretty" and that so happens to work for the SSnotime20 seen here. http://notimetostamp.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/
The card base is basic gray and the other colors used are..... well many. creamy caramel, sage, going gray, and s-sand. I also used a piece of basic grey DP for the brown panel you see. I stamped the flower 6 times and watercolor it with my sage, caramel, and cocoa, classic stamp pads. This is my fav way of coloring these days, lord only knows why I spent the money on all the other forms of coloring. But I do go back to them from time to time. I them layered the flowers and placed the on two off set squares of diff sizes in going and basic greys love those colors!!! the grey in this card came from the blanket on the arm of the couch in the IC piece I did not think that I was going to be able to pull it off with the rest of the color that I chose but in the end I think that it worked out nicely!!!

I am going to give this card to my midwife she has now delived two of my children and is a very sweet lady I hope that she likes it!!!

Another real beauty. Sorry I didn't get to call you back today but, by the time everyone went home it was too late to call the east coast. I miss you Sarah! I can't wait to see you and the babies. Maybe next month!
