It's SO You - Cardztv Challenge!

Hello you crafty friends!  Are you ready for a fun, fun challenge?
Mary at Cardztv Stamps has challenged us to use our favorite colors
to create a card, layout or craft project using YOUR favorite
colors.  It was fun, but not an easy challenge for me because
I LOVE so many color combinations.
However, I'm feeling springy these days.
We have about 8 inches of snow on the ground and I yearn
for spring flowers and some sun, so my card was born out 
of that yearning.  So that being said, here's the official information:

Cardz TV Ch# 26 "It's SO You!"
Make a card, layout or craft project using YOUR favorite colors.
Starts: Fri, Mar 8
Ends: Thurs, Mar 21 @ Noon EST
Prize: 1 set of Cardz TV Stamps 

Here is my project for this challenge:

My flower cut is from the Silhouette Store.  I used DWWV Spring Fling
Matstacks from last year.  I bought the patterned pack and the plain paper which
has a slight texture.  Both cut beautifully and really pull my project together.
The edges have all been inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.
I used a die cut for the circle behind the flower.  It seems to add a pop to the flower.
This die comes from My Creative Time line of products.

The sentiment is from Cardztv Stamp line GOOD FRIENDS!
The sentiment stamped beautifully on the textured paper.
The inside of the card looks like this:

I added two more mats to the inside and another sentiment from 
GOOD FRIENDS.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the bottom
border.  Check out the other GREAT projects made by the Design
