Celebrate With Us: Color Challenge

PTI is celebrating their 9th Anniversary, and we're all invited!
A 10 day party filled with inspiration and prizes.
Loving their products the way I do, I plan to stamp and play and 
enjoy every challenge!
1st up is color.
I selected Betsy's colors, but stretched them a bit.

OK, I really stretched them!

A few months ago, when Charmed was released, I crushed on a card 
by Kay Miller, featuring the emerald.
Similar to hers, I used the Charm stamps and dies,
and a Boutique Borders: Congrats die 
(she used Love),
and instead of Snowflake Flurries, I used Bold Blossoms
a set I can't seem to put away!
All in PTI purple inks to go with the amethyst birthday card, I painted the petals with ink on a block, the way Ashley did in her video here:

The Branching Out die is cut with
a gold paper, slightly on the chartreuse side.
The berries are from Twig Wreath, stamped with Raspberry Fizz and Canyon Clay.
the Gold sequins are close to Summer Sunrise.
Wonderful prizes and endless inspiration all on Nichole's blog,
