Bliss - Color Challenge #24

Peach Parfait, Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze - those are the 3 colors for challenge #24 with Rubber Red Neck here .  It took me a while to complete this task as I couldn't decide how to go about it.  So, always when this happens I go on to something else and let my brain go in random mode, letting my gray matter solve the problem for me.  And, after a couple of hours I had the solution.  Hope you like the card.
Stamp: Bliss
Inks: Cajun Craze, Markers - Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Peach Parfait
Papers: Base card is Peach Parfait, layered with Very Vanilla which has been embossed with Finial Press embossing folder.  Cajun Craze ink was lightly brushed over the embossed surface.
Image is stamped on Very Vanilla card stock, matted with Crumb Cake, and then Peach Parfait. and Cajun Craze. These colors are punched with the various edge punches and layered below the image.
Accessories: Punches:  Dotted scallop ribbon border, Pinking hearts border, Scallop trim border, Scallop edge border, Eyelet border punch. Finial Press embossing folder, Scallop circle punch, Crystal Effects (on the word Bliss, and the center of the flowers.
The small carnation flower was made by punching 3 Scallop circles and crumpling them repeatedly until the fibers were weakened.  Then each scallop was peeled into 2 layers - you end up with 6 scallops.  Put scallops on top of each other, pierce a hole in middle and insert a brad.  Then fold each layer up.  Unfold until you have the shape of flower you desire.
