No more halloween!

So the challenge at Dynamic Duos is Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black (with a dessert option of die cuts), but I am pretty much done with halloween cards for this year, so I wanted to do something a little bit different.  I decided to pair it with this beautiful sketch from Mojo Monday:
I decided to do just a general card that I could give to any friend on any given day. I thought this color combination was very striking and I was really pleased with the way it turned out!

I just love the DSP stacks for cards like this where you are only using a few colors.  The subtle patterns really help to break up the colors.  The flower I made in the corner was made from 5 scrunched up 1 1/4" Scallop Circle punches glued onto a 6th punch.  I spritzed it with Silver Foil Smooch Spritz to make it shimmer after it was assembled. I love the glimmer effect it now has!
