Another Sneak Peek for Two Challenges

I made this card using the new set, My Friend for two challenges. First, the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge#154 here. The colors to use are Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo and River Rock.  And second, for the PPA#97-What's Your Signature Style-here. 
I'm not exactly sure what my style is but I tend to gravitate towards bright and bold looks or crisp and clean?!? My favorite color collection is definitely the Brights Collection!
 I started with a base of Melon Mambo card stock and added some Elegant Eggplant. I ran some River Rock and Whisper White thru the Big Shot with the Top Note die and trimmed down the White piece. I colored in the big flowers stamp from My Friend with my Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo and River Rock Stampin' Write markers. It's hard to see from this picture but I stamped the circle image from My Friend in Elegant Eggplant on the Eggplant card stock. Then I stamped "my friend" in Eggplant on River Rock and popped it up with Stampin' dimensionals. I ran a strip of River Rock thru the Scallop Edge Border punch, Finally, some 3/ 8 inch Whisper White taffeta ribbon finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: My Friend
Papers: Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo, River Rock, Patterns DSP Brights Stack
Inks: Elegant Eggplant Classic Pad and Stampin' Write Marker, Melon Mambo and River Rock Stampin' Write markers
Accessories: Top Note Die, Scallop Edge Border punch, Stampin' dimensionals, 3/8 inch Whisper White taffeta ribbon
