The Corner Garden...Color Version

Hello friends.  The other day I showed you a black & white card using the "Corner Garden" (SU!) stamp, and today I have another card using the same stamp, but with color.  I actually have 2 cards to show you today, as one of them was kind of a mess up.  Take a look and see if you can figure out what I did wrong (in my eyes!) with one of these cards:

Yes, I am STILL hooked on the "smooshing" technique, and really wanted to use it for my background on this card; using more than 2 colors to make the flowers end up being all different colors.  Can you tell where I ran into a problem though?  I suppose there's nothing wrong with blue flowers, but I really wanted colored flowers and a blue sky...can you see the problem now?   Yep, wasn't thinking that I'd have to add my inks the opposite way to get the blue to come out on the upper right hand side instead of the left!  Hence making a 2nd card as my anal brain couldn't accept the sky not being in the right place! :0)  But anyway, I did make my "mistake" into a card, as I really do like how the colors blended together in that one, and I'll just send it to someone who doesn't think like I do! :0)

Inks:  Blueberry Sky, Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, Harvest Gold, & New Leaf (PTI)
Stamps:  Corner Garden(SU!), Butterfly Basics (SU!)

Thanks so much for stopping by...I love it when you do! :0)

Oh Marcia...the smooshing is perfect for this stamp! I know about opposite corners...makes you do a little thinking doesn't it? But really both cards are wonderful!
