Paper Players color challenge

I found a challenge blog called Paper Players.  Click HERE to see their challenge blog post.
The colors to use were: Baja Breeze, Poppy Parade, and So Saffron.  Sadly I missed read the part where I was to use white as the neutral....I used kraft....and I added some brown accent paper.  Hopefully they're not too strict on that neutral colors thing...but if they are I'll read the fine lines better next time.
Anyway, here is my card for this challenge.

I "cased" the layout design from K. Werner's latest Friday video, on Two Peas in a Bucket.  
The stamp set is Friends Never Fade, from Stampin' Up!  
Simple stamp the image twice - in baja breeze and in poppy parade.  Cut out the flower in poppy parade, color in the center and adhere with dimensionals.  Add strips of designer paper and twine and that's it!
For a softer look I also rounded the corners.
Thanks for stopping by.  Til the next challenge... happy stamping!

  4. I really like how you incorporated the Kraft and the brown with these colors! Gorgeous clean design and the flower just pops off the card beautifully. The baker's twine is a fabby touch, too! Very pretty! Thanks so much for playing along with The Paper Players this week! :)

  5. I love the rounded corners! The Baker's Twine is the perfect touch! Great layout, especially with the "popped" up flower! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  6. Gorgeous image to use with the color challenge! Really packs a punch! Thanks for playing with us this week, too!

  7. This is just fantastic--such a clean-and-simple design that really makes a statement. I adore the popped up flower and the striped paper is just perfect!
