Meg's Garden - June Sponsor for CSI

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.
June is a very special month for all of us in the Meg's Garden Design Team.  
Meg's Garden is sponsoring the CSI Color Challenge and some of our DT girls will be Guest Designers as well!!!
Unfortunately (or not) I do not Scrapbook so I won't be joining in on the Challenge but I have created a card using the COLOURS and some of the EVIDENCE.
Here is the Case File ...
... and here is my card.
The papers are from Meg's Garden's new Correspondence Collection and all the COLOURS are there. 
The PALE BLUE is the base paper which came from my stash but, as I had no teal or orange items, I had to mix some acrylic paints so I could colour my flowers.  I used blue and green for the TEAL and brushed it straight on the papers as well as colouring the small rose with it.  For the top layer it was watered down  to get the paler look.  Added a little texture with TCW's Mini Tile Stencil and some home made texture paste and applied small strips of adhesive pearls to create the CHEVRONS.
I mixed Vermilion and Yellow for the ORANGE to colour the large gardenia and made it fairly watery so it could be brushed straight onto the FLOWER.  Although I still have a lot of coloured flowers in my stash I find now that buying plain white ones and colouring them to suit my project is a much better option.  Meg's Garden has a great range of gorgeous flowers that can easily be coloured this way.  I did have some small YELLOW flowers so had no need to colour those.
Attached a little bit of gauze underneath the flower cluster and added some die cut LEAVES.
The Testimony is simply the die cut greeting which came from my stash.  I also added some pearl gem sprays at the bottom to create a balance for the chevrons.
Just a closie.
Simply added some border punched strips of the Correspondence Papers to decorate the inside ...
... and another view of the completed card.
