Colour Dare 267 - Have a Beautiful Day card

Welcome to another challenge at Colour Dare. This week, we are featuring the colour palette from the Falling for You paper pack - and it has a LOT of colours! If you want to use the papers from the paper pack, that makes it easy. If you don't have the paper pack, then please use the following colours - or as close to these colours as you have:

at least ONE of the neutrals 
(but you can use as many neutrals as you wish)

I chose to use the Falling for You paper pack as it contains so many of these colours and I also used one of the co-ordinating stamp sets, along with a couple of other stamps that fit really well. I wanted layers and layers of fall flowers and leaves that looked like those on the patterned paper... It was hard to get them all to fit on the left side so I pulled them together in a group. Some were die cut and some had to be fussy cut, depending on which stamp set I used. 
I used some retired twine to separate the papers and then ran some bronze and white twine along the side. I can't tell you how many times I lifted adhesive as I had placed items down and then realized the something had to be adhered underneath something else... that's the problem working with multiple layers when you are tired! 

SO, the finished product (with many layers)... 

Join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the colours this week to create a project for this challenge. There are a LOT of colours and it can be overwhelming, so we have divided up the colours a little bit. 
Be sure to use all three colours in the top palette and at least ONE neutral but you can use as many neutrals from the second palette as you want. 

You have until Nov. 9 at 10pm EST to link up your project.
