Friends Card - Colour My Heart Challenge

The colour challenge this week at Colour My Heart includes Peacock - one of my favourite colours in the CTMH palette. After some thought, I decided to combine winter and spring since we are having a terribly cold winter here right now. It was very later arriving but now that it is here, we have been hit hard with a ton of snow and very cold temperatures. These colours are perfect for winter But, I am also thinking toward spring so this card represents a little of both - blooming flowers but in a winter colour theme :) 

The flowers are in 4 layers - the same flower but in 4 sizes to give them depth. The lightest circles from the Blue Enamel and Glitter Dots are a perfect match to Crystal Blue. I even broke out the spray pen for this project! For some reason, my Peacock stamp pad tends to look very dark - almost like navy blue... 

This is the inside of my card. I had some extra Cricut pieces left and decided to use them on the inside as well.
