MFT Color Challenge 20 and MFTWSC 225

Meet my card for the MFT Color Challenge 20 and MFTWSC 225.  The negative of the Upsy Daisy Die-Namics was used for the flowers.  To add interest and dimension the panel was attached using foam tape.  The middle of the flowers were the perfect size to add enamel dots.
