Generations - My Pink Stamper design team call

My Pink Stamper is having a design team call!  I think it is so wonderful that bloggers like her take on design teams and have other people also share on their site.  Here is the layout I made, using her specifications: 


Here is the challenge:  Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite Cricut cartridge (I used Storybook, my favorite for flourishes, and Baby Steps, my current favorite font!) using the following colors......


Orange
Turquoise 
Green
Brown
(other optional color of your choice) - I chose yellow

First I picked the picture I wanted to use.  This is my husband with his mother, grandmother, and our daughter last year on Mother's Day.  We really had a wonderful dinner out all together to celebrate these wonderful women.  This is a 4x6 picture but I wanted it to take up more room so I matted it at 5x7 and 5.25x7.25.  The punch along the bottom of the green paper is a Fiskars punch but I don't know the name of it!
 
I wanted to do some sort of flourish so I went to my favorite cart for that, Storybook.  I cut the flower vine from the letter K key, in the border and main cut at 3" in multiple colors.  The smaller yellow main cuts are 2".  I cut the corner cut from the same K key at 2" in brown and 1.5" in yellow.  



I used the Baby Steps cart to cut my title, both in regular and shadow at 0.75".  


 
When I was finished, I used my i-Rock to add a few gemstones hidden in the flowers.  I just wanted a minor touch of sparkle. 
 
And that's it!  A big thank you to Robyn at MPS for hosting a design team and allowing anyone who wants to, to enter!  It would be a huge honor to be chosen to design for her!  Thanks for looking!
