Kristina Werner Color Inspiration #30

Here's my take for this weeks Kristina's Color Inspiration which is Old Olive, Certain Celery, Sahara Sand and Whisper White.

It's such a beautiful color combination and I really don't think that I did a good job with this card. My daughter Toni thinks it's missing something before I put the self-adhesive rhinestones and after I did she said "I like all your cards Mom, but not this one." Sometimes, I really don't like showing her what I create, she's too honest...LOL!

Where did you get the flowers? I went to a wedding and the gift tags on our favors had a flower just like this only with a pearl in the middle. I would love to find them. (is it wrong to say I kept them to use on a card? oh and ribbon too!) =)
