Papertrey Posse July Challenge

It's time for the Papertrey Posse group challenge for July!  Our hostess this month is Amy, and she challenged us with a color challenge:
Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, Melon Berry, and Dark Chocolate

Here's what I came up with:
I started by deciding that aqua mist would be the main color and the others would be accent colors in varying degrees.  To make the flowers, I die cut some bloom nesties in two sizes, stamped them with the same text that is on the melon berry strip on the edge, cut in to create petals, and crumpled them up a lot.  Lots of crumpling works the layers loose, so I started peeling back layers of cardstock for a fuller look.  I glued the smaller flower on the larger and added an ocean tides button in the center.  Here's a closer look:

Everyone is welcome to play along, so come join the fun!

The Details:

1. Create a card using the colors provided below - Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, Melon Berry, and Dark Chocolate (or something close if you don't have these on hand).
2. Use at least one PTI product on your card.
3. Post your creation to your blog on July 15th for our official Papertrey Posse Parade of Blogs!
4. On July 15th, after you have posted your card, stop by and sign Mr. Linky on the official Parade of Blogs July 2010 post.
