One Layer Wednesday.. Yellow, Orange and Aqua

I made these cards for One Layer Wednesday...the challenge this week(#58) is to make a one layer card using the colors yellow, orange and aqua.  Here's what I came up with:
 The first card used a stamp set from Annabelle Stamps and a sentiment from Hero Arts.  I wanted one of each of the flowers to stand out, so I stamped the 2nd, 4th and 6th flowers first and masked them to stamp the remaining flowers.  Added stick on dots and sentiment.
The second card, I stamped the frame and masked to sponge the blue, then the orange and covered the blue and orange and sponged the yellow.  Added the sailboat and sentiment.  Cut the card to 4"...thought it looked better framing the frame.
Thanks for looking, love the colors of this challenge...what fun:)!!

Things I used:
Stamps: Annabelle Stamps Stemmed Flowers, Hero Arts Thinking of You
             Papertrey Ink Framed, Masculine Motifs and Fillable Frames 1
Paper: Bazzill white
Ink: stazon black, Tangerine Tango, Cool Caribbean, Daffodil Delight
Extras: stick on dots, clear embossing powder
