DeNami Design Color Challenge #9

Howdy, friends! It's time for a brand new challenge at DeNami Design!!! YAY!!! This time around it's a color challenge!!! Check out this FRESH and FUN color combo from Emily!

Sooooo pretty, right?!?!

Here's my creation:

My layout was inspired by this photo from the March 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine:

I wanted to try to create the same kaleidoscope effect on my card. I first used a pencil to draw a grid and then I stamped out my pattern using images from DeNami Design's Ornamental Flowers Stamp Set and my handy dandy Stamp-A-Ma-Jig tool. I erased the pencil lines and then colored in the images with Copic Sketch Markers.  

What do you think??? I hope you like my card and feel inspired to play along in our challenge!!! I'd LOVE to see your creations!!!
