Flower Jar of Thanks -- a Catch the Bug Challenge

It's Saturday, and that means there's a new challenge at Catch the Bug Challenges.  Every Saturday, a new one begins!  Today, it's a color challenge.  I don't know why, but they are always a bit tricky for me.  I don't like being confined to a limited number of colors.  I feel stifled, I guess!

Fortunately, I really like the blue green color family, and that was part of today's color palette.  Here's the color swatch for you:

Here's what I made using these colors:

I used a digi called Tulip Jar and colored it with Copic markers.  I found a paper that I thought matched the color scheme at We Are 3 Digital Shop.  It is one of the papers in the Darcy's Garden Collection.  I used a couple of dies from a Crafter's Companion set to cut out and back the Tulip Jar.  The Thanks is a sentiment from Crafter's Companion.  I cut it twice and offset it just a bit.  I used some tan and brown gems from my stash to finish off the card.

I hope you enter the color challenge at Catch the Bug this week.  We have awesome prizes you can win!
