KW Colour Inspiration #26

Yay, another Kristina colour challenge! I had to skip last weeks challenge as my sister and her family were visiting, and then absolutely NO inspiration came in the hour after she left and before the deadline. I took one look at last weeks colours and thought "too primary (where's the purple?)" lol , and even though this weeks colours are similar this idea came pretty quickly.
I've been wanting to pull out All Through the Year for a little while, and when I thought about it again this morning it didn't take long to realise it would be a perfect set for this. In the end though most of the stamping on the card comes from the matching wheel Garden Annuals lol. The picture doesn't do the card justice, I've made the white a bit whiter than it was first appearing in the photo but I don't want to over-tweak it.

All supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Whisper White, So Saffron
Stamp Sets: All Through The Year, Garden Annuals
Inks: Bashful Blue, Real Red
Accessories: Wild Wasabi "marker" (blender pen + refill), dimensionals, mini glue dot, paper trimmer to score lines, 3/16" corner rounder, double circle punch

Carol,
I love your card ... You used all the colors so beautifully.. This was such a hard color scheme and you did it so brilliantly.

Carol, did you colour the wheel in using markers? My goodness that would have taken you an age to do! You certainly have loads of patience :) It was very worth while and the recipient is going to be a very lucky person. Thanks so much for sharing :)
