Flower Jar

This is my take on Day 4 of the Birthday Bash going on over at Catch The Bug Challenges.  The challenge is a color challenge with this color pallet.....  

I used all six colors in my image but decided to use only one of the colors in my card.  I felt that this helped bring more attention to the boldness of the image and help it POP off the card.  

To create my card I used the following sketch from Crafting When We Can.....

I started with a turquoise card base. I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens.  The embossing in done using a Cuttlebug dots embossing folder.  The gems are blue bubbles from Queen & Co.  I backed everything in turquoise card stock and added it to a piece of white card stock.

I am entering this card into the following challenges;

A beautiful card Mary. I love the dimension you have on your card with the use of the dotty embossing. Your jar of flowers looks very fresh and reminiscent of my flower jar (errr) vase. :-)
