Make It Monday #64: Using Color Inspiration ~ Day 3

I made it to Day 3! WooHoo!  I really liked this color combo and I thought the design inspiration was easy to copy. I am pleased, actually VERY pleased how this card turned out!
First an update. Colin did not make it to the stage at DECA Nationals, they were 11th and you need to be at least 10, but we are SO PROUD of him! A HUGE accomplishment. Over 16, 000 attendees! Way to go Colin!
Second. I told you I spent 2 1/2 hours getting graduation invitations printed yesterday. I printed 200 invitations without the day or time! I cannot tell you the frustration, let alone the $$ down the drain! I had so much trouble and got so distracted..... I felt so STUPID! Anyway one of the other Mothers is taking care of the re-print. Hopefully Sam's will at least give us credit for the envelopes!
OK, back to the card. 4 1/4x5 1/2 white side fold. The Royal Velvet leaves are from Turning a New Leaf, the Smokey Shadow mat is Mat Stack 3 & Layerz, the flowers are all Notched Flowers and 1/2 & 3/4 circle punches. Other than Smokey Shadow I have the "rule of 3" if you count the top leaf sprig as 2 where it splits.
I hope to see you tomorrow!
Thank you for looking at my blog!
