CTD174 - Have a sweet day.

It's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge
Broni is our hostess for this week's challenge and she's chosen some pretty colors to snap us out of our after holiday winter dull drum.

For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Garden Variety with coordinating die along with the PTI picket fence die and wood grain impressions plate.  I started out with a soft suede card base, added a white cardstock panel then my soft sky embossed cardstock and October Afternoon designer paper along with a scallop border.  For the main image I stamped the watering can onto the die cut and added a MFT die cut flower and button as an accent.
