Color for cardstock

So I'm on day two of the Papertrey challenges - I really want to win some new goodies! Today's challenge by Nichole was a color combination: PTI's pure poppy, summer sunrise, ocean tides and ripe avocado. You can read all the details HERE. Since I don't actually own any PTI ink or paper, I substituted with SU colors: so saffron, real red, old olive and baja breeze. I paired them with fanciful dots from Unity and another scrap of this KI Memories lace overlay. I needed a quick card that could go right in the mail to a friend, so I kept the rest of the embellishment simple, just adding some We R eyelets to the centers of the dots. I finished the card off with a sentiment from Rosie's Roadshow. I thought about putting something under the sentiment, but couldn't come up with anything, so I stopped there.
Stamps: Fanciful dots - Unity; sentiment -Rosie
Ink: real red, so saffron, old olive
Paper: baja breeze, real red, so saffron, old olive, neenah classic crest white, KI lace overlay
Accessories: We R eyelets
