Color variation on Regarding Dahlia

One of the swaps I saw during convention used Regarding Dahlia in a monochromatic way with daffodil and basic gray that I thought was very modern so I CASED it and did a variation on it with melon mambo and basic gray. This is also very nice with a light blue and gray, real red and gray- you get the idea.  The base card is whisper white with a layer of melon mambo.  Then stamp the dahlias with melon mambo onto whisper white CS then layer with basic gray as shown.  Stamp Hello, you onto scrap piece of white CS- you could use either of the colors. then punch out with 1 1/4 inch circle punch. then layer with coordinating colored CS then onto the the basic gray piece diecut with Apothecary Accents using dimensionals- do you not use this die for Everything?- I just love this set!  decorate with the flower from the punch pack- set of 3-  then the bling on top.  Wrap the gray stitched grosgrain ribbon around the white panel before mounting onto the melon mambo base card.  
I love the possible combinations of colors for this card.  You can use any flower set - secret garden, fifth avenue floral (retired) would work well with this layout as well.   Gotta love the saying though......
