Color Throwdown 206

It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge and Kerri has some fabulous colors for us this week!  I took a literal translation of the inspiration photo and used these new images from Flourishes with cut flowers in a Mason jar (from the "Garden Picks" set).  I'm also using a tweaked version of Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #73.  No matter how hard I tried to slightly tilt the image, I just couldn't do it!  Normally, I love the visual interest of a tilted panel, but it simply didn't work for me on this card.  I think it was because the water level in the jar was wrong - lol!  :-) play along, you don't have to have the exact colors.  You can choose something that's close in color.  Please use the keyword CTD206 if you upload to a public gallery.  You'll want to stop by and visit the rest of the design team's blogs (as well as our talented guestie, Vickie Zimmer):
