Gallon, Quart, and Pint

Cathy is hosting a series of challenges over on Moxie Fab World using design rules. The Gallon, Quart, and Pint rule is all about the proportions of colors.  Typically I only use two colors and a neutral, so this challenge sparked my thought process and design. 

The main color was derived by stamping the image using a teal ink. (My Gallon)  The flowers are perfect for the next splash of color(quart) and the pink pops.  I finished with the touch of light green(Pint).  The embellishments bring back a hint of my strongest color mixed in with the neutral.  The flowers and ribbon are really white I promise. :)  Obviously they must have a warmer undertone because when I did my photo editing it turned more ivory.
