PPC-CC 61 - Thank you Card

Gosh these weeks sure do seem to go fast!!  We have had some really nice weather the last few days... so not inside much.  It's about time!!
It's Monday again... which means it is time for another color combo challenge from Picture Perfect Creations...crafty challenges.  These colors stumped me.  I had an idea to scrap a Hiking Layout... but couldn't get the pictures to print the way I wanted them.  So when in doubt... use flowers for anything and I am always needing Thank You cards.  So with that said... here is what I came up with.

Here is the color combo...

I was able to use these colors to a tee... except I did not have "Cajun Craze" INK... so you see ** "Really Rust" as my substitute.  Pretty darn close.  (You are welcome to do the same.  Use substitutes when necessary.) And remember... Andy kind of crafty project welcome!! 
I would love to see what you come up with this week.  Grab a cup of coffee and head on over to the PPC Challenge Blog for challenge # 61.  The DT's have done it again with their wonderful creations!!
Hope to see you!!
Have a wonderful Monday!!

It feels good to comment on your cards again. I just love the stamp you used and the way you colored them and highlighted the middle with the brads. The layout of your card is just awesome too! Another awesome inspiration for us this week. Way to rock another color combo! Love seeing what you do each week. Have a great day!!

Hey Michele, we are one in the same, no Cajun ink!! I too used really rust. Your card is beautiful. Love your flowers, especially how you added the darker green to bring in the artichoke color (so smart!). Love the brad centers. Fabulous!
