Missing You Color Throwdown

Hi Everyone!

My card for today is for this week's Color Throwdown challenge and also for Tuesday Morning Sketches. Now, when I first started crafting, I ordered everything from Stampin Up!
Then my shopping horizons expanded and I realized that there were just so many cheaper and sometimes better alternatives to SU. As a result, I haven't ordered anything SU in YEARS!! Therefore, when it came to gathering my colors for the color throwdown challenge, I had to use my Papertrey ink colors. The colors I found that matched the best were: Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Melon Berry, Autumn Rose and a scrap of paper that substitutes well enough for the Razzleberry.
Once I had put the layers all together, I was trying to think of an image to use; but then realized that perhaps it would be best to just keep it simple. I added a layered flower with a button in the middle. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I stamped it in Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
I think I was also able to fix the photograph issue I was having least I hope so. I think this one  is better than yesterday!
There were lots of challenges over at Paper Playful for me to play along with this card!
