Bordering Saffron Pirouette

Today's card is for yesterday's color challenge on Splitcoast to use Bordering Blue, So Saffron, Pink Pirouette and optional brown. I love the With Sympathy set from Papertrey and thought the colors would be perfect for the challenge!!! This card is also for the sketch challenge on Splitcoast today, I really like this sketch!!!
I changed my colors up a little, instead of using Pink Pirouette I used Papertrey's Sweet Blush (which is hard to see some of the flowers are, but I used the outline stamp in the set using So Saffron) and I used Papertrey's Dark Chocolate. I also used Papertrey's New Leaf for the leaves, I thought some of the other colors might look funny!! LOL!!
I wanted to add some texture so I distressed the edges with scissors and ran my Dark Chocolate pad along the edges, I really like the look!! I just realized, for the first time in a looooong time, I didn't use Nestabilites, wow!!! Ha!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
