Hello Friend - (CTD393)

Hello!  Hope your week is going well so far.  It's Wednesday and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.
For my card, I used the Concord & 9th stamp sets, Flourish and Sophisticated Script.  I guess I got creating this card and ended up taking some liberties with the colors for this week's challenge.  I went with more berry colors and a tope instead of a gray, I found that out once I was posting my card, whoops.  Anywho, I went with a white card base, then added a panel of scarlet jewel and then my stamped piece with a white scalloped edge along the bottom.  For the stamping, I used sahara sand ink and stamped the large branch.  Next I stamped the largest flower which is three step stamping and used rose red, cranberry crisp and scarlet jewel ink (PTI).  Then to make my lighter colored flowers stand out on my beige paper, I stamped them white craft ink and let them dry for a few minutes before stamping them in cameo coral and rose red.  Once all of my flowers were stamped, I inked up the large branch stamp again and stamped off before stamping onto my cardstock.  This gave a subtle look and some added interest to the lower portion of my card.  I also used the white craft ink to stamp some of the dotted filler flowers and finally once my layers were adhered together, I tied on some twine.
