split coast color challenge

Hi Stampers!
I wanted to join a color challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers but I was techno challenged again so I'm posting this solely for you.  The colors for the challenge are Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive.  I am a HUGE Old Olive fan, but the other two colors are truly a challenge for me!  What do you do when that happens?  Use smaller amounts!  The colors are really quite beautiful in small touches- check this out!
I went with a 3"x3" card size, you know, the kind you place in an order for your customers!  You could also insert this in a gift for a friend!  So many possibilities!  Maybe I'll do both!
So I used Raining Flowers again, I'm becoming quite attached to this set.  The Thanks is from a longer saying "Kind thanks" from Thank you Kindly stamp set but I used my trusty black Stampin' Write marker to use only the part of the stamp that I wanted- neat trick!  You could call it masking, but it is really omitting.
Another tip for those of you learning to photograph your work- white on white is too hard to photograph!  Change up the background to get the detail of the card to show up- you will be so much happier.  I am.
Thanks for stopping by!
