Please make your card using Peach and Aqua. You can also use cream/white for your cardstock and flesh colours for any images.
There is an extra option available which you can use if you wish, although this isn't compulsory. This week's option is 'DIY flowers', which means not using any pre made, bought flowers on your cards and projects. Here are some ideas which might help:
Stamp a flower onto card and cut it out
Punch and layer flowers
Die cut flowers
Doodle your own flowers
Stitch flowers Peel and mount stickers to form a flower Use shaped petals eg, hearts to form a flower
Make flowers from Nestie shapes

Make a ribbon flower

I'm sure there are lots more ways, please feel free to come up with your own! Don't forget that embossing, distressing, ink edging, etc will all add to the effect and you could add a stamen to the centre. Also glitter, glossy accents, liquid pearl drops might work well. Unusual materials might include tissue paper, vellum, acetate, chipboard...... just a few ideas.


I used the Sarah Kay image - Spring Blossom and coloured her with pastels. The basic cardstock is DCWV - Old World Stack. The flowers are cut with the EKSuccess Retro flower punch and mounted on a vine.

Materials
Papers - DCWV - Old World Stack : Image - Sarah Kay - Spring Blossoms : Derwent Pastels : Leone Em Branch and stamen Punch : EK Success Retro flower punch : Cuttlebug - Vintage corners and Sizzix Flourish die : Ribbon from stash.
