365 Cards Day 281 Color Scheme

Okay...this morning I woke up...and had an idea for
This is another one of is good to have a challenge like this...because I would of never decided to put these colors together.  Although...I do have a blue dining room, red (red..not burgundy) living room, Golden Yellow Foyer...and Green Family room.  My furniture (wood) is painted black or cream.  Interesting.  Back to the color scheme.....below
Here is my Card below.  I really didn't think I would like it...and before you know it....I love it!  I will be converting it into an Easel card so I can give it to my friend....and she can display it.
I used a flower and a fall leaf file that I downloaded from the Silhouette SD online store.  I used Ranger peeled paint and broken glass.  Stazon jet black ink for some background stamping (and my fav background stamp..that I carved). 
The flower is pink, the center rhinestone..and the other rhinestones are a golden orange color.  The leaves are green, background is both blue and black...and I have orange organza ribbon.
I used pink glitter...on the chippy bird, and added some darker pink flower rhinestones.  The sentiment is on a stick pin that I received from a RAK from Gloria Stengel who is on the design team
at 365 Cards...and the lovely Graphic 45.
I simply just cut out the shapes...and folded the leaves and flower petals the way that I would of "painted" them...I know that is probably as clear as mud...but I get it...and so would my painting buddies.
I was even able to use some of the black buttons that were amongst the antique buttons I have purchased.
Thanks for visiting!  Hope this inspires you to work 
out of your "Normal" color scheme!
