Spellbinders + DCWV: Bloom Hello Card

 Spellbinders Bloom Hello Card by Maria Byrd at CraftsyByrd.blogspot.com

Good morning!  I just finished making Bloom Hello Card based on three card challenges.  One of the challenges required use of pattern paper, so I had to go through my stash of DCWV and pick colors similar enough to MFT (My Favorite Things) Color Challenge.  Then the fun starts with trying to (re)interpret MFT's Sketch 335 for the layout.  I've never combined these colors before which as I would describe them as orange, tangerine, medium warm gray, and pool blue.

Stitched Frames and Scalloped Borders dies are from Lawn Cuts.  Sentiment is from Altenew Floral Frame stamp. Shapeabilities Die D-Lites Sprigs and Blooms are from Spellbinders.  I also die cut the flower in vellum and layered it with the patterned paper.  I then curled excess trimmings to make curlys and loops.  The colors reminded me of a 70s retro shirt. 😊

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges:
