CAS Colour Challenge

Now that Spring is on it's way it's maybe time for some pretty floral cards and as I was choosing the colours this week over on CAS - Colours & Sketches I was thinking pale pinks and soft greens - why then did I spoil it all by adding dark brown?????? Anyway for the die hard crafters among you here are the actual colours

And here is my card. (Remember that Stampin' Up colours are not compulsory - the nearest you have in your stash will do just as well).

This really is a rubbish photo - but I loved how this card evolved. I only had tiny scraps of Early Espresso in my stash and this lovely circle so that was the starting point. I die cut the lattice and then as my pink flowers did not show up very well on the white I added an embossed oval to the middle. I'm thinking I may use this for Easter as the middle looks rather like a cross.
