The Paper Players Colour Challenge #103

I needed a special card for a very dear friend who is having surgery this week. I found a great couple of techniques at DO stamping with Dawn and I was eager to try them out. Then, I checked in on The Paper Players and look at the yummy color combo they've challenged us with:

My substitute for Daffodil Delight is a much paler yellowish/ivory and the photo doesn't show how great the colors look together. My green is only on the leaves of my flower, but I hope it counts!

First, I followed Dawn's excellent video tutorial for Triple Time Stamping here. Then I added one of her Faux Suede Flowers following this video tutorial. She has so many great tutorials...you should check out her site!
The paper is all from a Club Scrap collection called Memoirs, which is only available now as a digi kit - no paper :(. The background stamp is HA Flower Dot Pattern and the Flower stamp is from this UM sheet of rubber from Club Scrap's Interior Design kit. The sentiment stamp is also an UM set from Club Scrap, but I don't remember the name.
