I am going to be a little partial today.....I just LOVE how this card turned out! I dug out my Color Coach and this is the color combination I came up with for the Saturday Create with Connie & Mary Challenge:

This is the sketch challenge for this Saturday's challenge:

Notice how I strayed away from the square layer above and used the Labels Collection Framelits below for a  substitution. I also used a coordinating stamp set called Apothecary Art and embossed the image with Tangerine Tango Embossing Powder:

For my cute trio of flowers I have a tutorial listed on my free tutorials page. Click HERE if you would like to learn how to create these. They are quite simple. I also added a few branches from the Little Leaves Die. Notice how just a tiny pop of Very Vanilla brings out the colors. I also added a little bit of ribbon by adding some Sticky Strip at the bottom of my stamped layer and scrunching up the ribbon as I stuck it on:
