Freshly Made Sketches 207 and Color Throwdown 363

I love it when I see a sketch or a color challenge and I know exactly what to do with it.  Sometimes I think I know and it ends up taking a lot longer than planned.  But today everything came together so quickly and it turned out even better than I hoped.  First let me share with you the challenges I stumbled upon this morning at Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown:

Here is the retirement card I made:

I had this stamp set, Wild About Flowers for awhile but hadn't gotten a chance to use it.  When I saw the colors and the sketch, I knew it would be perfect.  I used some DSP from the Pretty Petals stack in Mint Macaron.  I used So Saffron for my yellow.  It really was a quick and easy card.  I decided to add the pearl accents to give it a little a punch along with the little bit of retired taffeta ribbon.  

Thanks so much for looking!  I can't wait to use this stamp set again along with the sketch maybe.
