Dirty Dozen Challenges!!!!

This is my 3rd year participating in the dirty dozen challenges!!! They are so much fun and I feel they help me grow so much!!! I will be busy the next few days stamping away!!! My goal is to participate in every one of them!! We are able to combine the challenges (whew!) and today's card incorporates 2 from today. I combined Betty's challenge to create our own background and Becca's cut it out challenge. I made my background with my Background Basics Retro set, this set has so many fun images to create backgrounds!!! I cut the flowers with chipboard using my Cuttebug dies. I cut out a second time with my Bitty Box dp. I wanted to pull different colors together that I would not normally put together. I decided on Pure Poppy, Lavender Moon and Aqua Mist. I wanted something different in the center of each flower, it was fun!! I used an Aqua Mist button, Rose Robbins Nest Dew Drop and Queen & Co. Scrap in the City Sprinkles brad. I thought the sentiment was fun for this card!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
