Ready for the challenge?
This is going to make you think outside the box.  

Color your image as you normally would.

Attach to whatever background you choose.  

Now, Lay out color matched prints, stripes, plaids, etc.
From these papers above choose 3 plus any other

solid for a toral of 5 colors counting your backing

piece, for the card base.

Lay your image and backing paper on each of your
choices, layering with the papers in several different

positions to see the one that is different, but really

excites you visually......”Stepping out of the box”

Now, decide how you will use these on your card. You

treat these papers the same as any other papers you would use on your card.
Now you're Bein' Different. 
I colored the roses favorite color rose. 
Placed it on pink striped paper and used pink paper with swirls, dots,
a solid pink of equal size. 
Then used a vintage print for the background on the card. 
I added some flatback crystal gems and a ribbon. 

Hope to see you at the challenge.
Hugs, love and prayers
