RS#24/CQC#149 - Hello Buttercup!

Hi there!  It's time for this week's Retro Sketches Challenge #24.  The sketch for this week was based on Laurie's pretty card which you can see here.

For my card I not only used the Retro Sketch for my layout but also used the colors from the Colour Queen Challenge #149.  I kept my card clean and simple, I started out with a garden green (didn't have gumball green), then added a panel of night of navy (no midnight muse either), then added an embossed panel of white.  To get the circular shape from the sketch I used a doily and then layered the two shades of green die cut leaves and "buttercup" yellow flower with button.
Supplies: Signature Greetings II, Turning a New Leaf + dies, Flower die, Grid Impressions Plate, Doily, Button.
 
Be sure to stop over at the Retro Sketches blog to see Arielle, Kasia and Laurie's creations using this fun sketch.
 
Have a great day!
