better than 50... (CTS, SCS)

What do you get when you cross this CAS(E) This Sketch

and this inspiration photo from PTI's anniversary challenge (yeah, I was late for the party but oh-so-taken with that gallon of magenta)?
Here's the "mutt".   BTW, the inside reads "Better than 50!".  This, BTW,  is the predicament I will also find myself in this year...

A gallon magenta (was my fave color in the Crayola box), a quart lime green and a pint each red, yellow and blue.  Gold is of course a neutral ;)  In retrospect, I could have made the blooms happen like in the inspiration photo by using a different PP on the tag, but I was lazy and using up scraps that were laying around from my other card inspired by the photo.  That was more of a challenge and that will come at ya tomorrow...

There are fun challenges happening at Splitcoast with some of their tried and true manufacturers.  Since I finally used my win from HYCCT and placed my order with Stamping Bella (and oh, woe is me, Jane Girl appears to be sold out) I am putting this card in the gallery for the Bling Challenge.

Thanks for visiting.
