CTD#210 - Blooming Button Bits Birthday Card

Hello there!  It's time for the Color Throwdown Challenge #210.  Our hostess for this week's challenge is Tammy who chose these wonderful colors.

I hope you can join in on the challenge this week, we'd love to see what you create. If you don’t have these exact colors, it’s no problem....just substitute with what you have that’s close to this week’s colors. Once you’ve finished your card/project, be sure to add a direct link to your creation using the linky tool provided on the CTD blog so we can see your creation. If you upload to an online gallery, don't forget to use the keyword CTD210.
 The card that I created was a birthday card for my sweet friend Vicki {hi Vicki}, I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Blooming Button Bits, Happy Hexagons and Mat Stack 4 Collection.  After really looking at the inspiration photo and seeing how the flowers seem to have patterns and texture to them I decided on trying to give my card some different textures as well.  For the top solid panel I stamped the flowers from the Button Bits set then embossed it using a herringbone embossing folder which I thought would coordinate with the herringbone Mat Stack stamped image for my sentiment.  I also added texture by using a few different patterns while stamping my hexagons and used only the more muted colors for my hexagons so that my flowers would be sure to pop and my card would be overly busy.
