Color challenge at HIMCR

I like color challenges. I'm color challenged and I'm hoping that some day I will figure out how to match up colors. It has been explained to me over and over again, but...
The colors for the Hiding In My Craft Room challenge #53 are Old Olive, Summer Sun, Certainly Celery. I'm don't know what shade of yellow Summer sun is so I used Summer Starfruit, one of the new SU 2012-2014 In Colors.
For the layout I used the Build a Sketch challenge at SSSD. Out of 18 numbered shapes we are given five with which to build a card . This is my BAS for August. Whoopee, its done! However, as I look at this card, I find I have left out one of the pieces. Since I don't know where I would put it, I'm leaving it out.  I like this card and  in person the flower centers sparkle.
When I first made the card, I didn't like it, but as I look at it more, I am very satisfied with it.
The image, Flower Wreath, is from Hero Arts. I colored the flowers using More mustard, So saffron, Daffodil delight, Old olive and Certainly celery and some sparkly pens from stash.
The butterfly punch is SU and the gems are from stash.
If you like color challenges, hop on over to HIMCR and join in  the fun.
Thanks for stopping by and Take Care

This is one of my favorite pieces of art from you of all that I have seen. It is truly gorgeous. That wreath of flowers and vine with the butterfly is fabulous.
