Color blocking technique

Hi Friends!! I was too excited to post this card based on last week's Mojo Monday #236 until I found out that I missed the timeline. Ditto for the card I made for Card Patterns :(
Nevertheless, I am glad I could make 4 cards this weekend. And I loved both these sketches a lot and the cards I have made are very different from the usual stuff that I make.

The inspiration for the color combo for this card is the color blocking technique. I loved this new combo which I would have not tried otherwise. The pretty PP that you see here is a RAK from Mallika which came just in time to match this card I would say. The flower is made using a template I found from net. It can be easily made without the template as well. The template had 3 layers and I added a readymade flower in the center.
 Another view..
I am starting a new section in my blog and will be sharing Freebies and Templates with you all. So here goes the first template for this flower. Please note that not all the stuff shared in this section is made by me. I will also be sharing stuff that I find on the net with full credit to the source.
This pretty template is from Maria. She also has some interesting tutorials on her blog. Do check them out.

Have a nice day!!
