Did I go crazy? Kwerner Color Inspiration #57

I'm thinking I did get a little crazy with this one. Well, to be honest I thought these colors were HARD! Really hard. I had a hard time making them all flow well together, but I think I like it. Well maybe you want to see the colors first:


Pretty serious challenge right? Well I thought so. I was a little unsure so I asked Chase what he thought and his comment was "too many buttons." Girls he so doesn't get our my obsession with buttons. I did take off a few, but there are still several!

One little thing I did really learn is that I can just barely fold donw the ends of my Birds and Bloom large flower die and it gives it such a cute look. Here's a closer shot.

Cardstock: Stampers Select White (Papertrey Ink), More Mustard, So Saffron, Cameo Coral (Stampin' Up)
Pattered Paper: Cherry Hill (October Afternoon)
Stamps: Big and Bold Wishes (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: More Mustard, So Saffron (Stampin' Up)
Buttons: White and Cream Mix, Hibiscus Burst (Papertrey Ink)
Die Cut/Punch: Birds and Blooms (Stampin' Up), 1.5" circle punch (Paper Shapers)
Thread: 5220 (Coats and Clark)

I found this challenge challenging, too. :) Great job with the colors. I think you nailed it! Love the way you turned up your flower petals. Gotta try that -- I've used the bird tons and have hardly used the flowers at all. Time to pull them all back out! Thanks for the inspiration!
