I chose Papaya, Avocado and Harbour. I pulled out the Love Story Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet (Black) with that gorgeous black and white flowers and decided to colour it. Its a "wedding" pack with the stickers but without the stickers its a great every use paper pack and great for colouring.
I cut it to 3.75x 5 inches and I grabbed out the Close to My Heart guide that shows the CTMH colours of cardstock and the Triblend Markers equivalent. So the avocado is Alpine Green TriBlend™ Marker -light and Dull Green TriBlend™ Marker - medium x3. (see pic below)
FYI: Contact me if you'd like a copy of the PDF of the cardstock matching CTMH cardstock with the Triblend Markers as shown below (its 3 pages and you cut a 1 inch circle of cardstock and then colour in with triblend markers to make the matching colours).
Unfortunately the guide hasn't got the new colours in yet so I pulled out the triblend marker colours to find the closest to the Papaya (which is new).
I decided Coral TriBlend™ Marker was closest and used those three colours to colour in the petals and flowers.
Note: The darker coral pen isn't a good match (too dark) so I only used the lightest coral and I covered that first one up with the cardstock and thanks title.
To finish off the card I cut a peice of Harbour Cardstock at 4x5.25 inches and an off-cut strip leftover which is about half an inch ish. Then I stamped the THANKS with Daisy Alphabet stamps using Papaya Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad on White Daisy Cardstock and trimmed it to size and then matted it in Harbour Cardstock.
All attached to a White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack card with a white edge.
