Sweet Spring

Here's my LO for Color Combos Galore Challenge 184. This color combo looked much easier than it was to actually work with. I think it's because I didn't have a coordinated set of papers and embellishments so I had to make my own flowers...after much trial to get the right look and feel.
Title: Sweet Spring
Materials: Cardstock - American Crafts; Patterned Papers - Basic Grey; Mist - Tattered Angels; Velvet Ribbon - American Crafts; Journaling Diecut - Tim Holtz; Buttons - Nikki Sivils; Misc ribbon and doily; Pen & Rub-ons - American Crafts; Fabric Tab - 7 Gypsies; Chipboard - Scrapworks; Paint - Folk Art

I hope you get to try this pretty color combo this week.
