What a Challenge!

Hi, yes it is past my bedtime! I work so hard on this all day between work hours I just had to finish it and get it on line. This is for the JustRite color challenge. The colors were pale olive, chocolate, pumpkin and ivory as your neutral. They took to colors from copics below.
I really don't have those colors I checked my DP to find them. I have only two JustRite stamp sets the Groovy Snowmen and Stitched with Love. I went for the Stitched with Love. I pulled the quilted flower out and started to work on my design. I stamped the flower several times on 3 different DP's from K&Co. I cut most of the flowers apart so I could get a good color spread. I then pieced them all back together row by row. I stamped two extra on the pumpkin dp to add more interest and balance to the card. I really wasn't happy with the layout so I traced around the flowers on an olive piece of card stock cut around the traced lines to create a mat. I used my circle nestie to cut the saying, the mat and the inside blank, which will be filled in later when I know where the card is going. I attached an ivory ribbon for a pull tab and used little tiny pop dots to make a stopper in the pocket. Pumpkin dew drops were added to finish off the corner.
Well wish me luck, there are a lot of talented crafters over there and the big prize is for 10 copics of your choice!
Have a wonderful day.
