CTD#183 - Garden Variety Thank You

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.
Wanda is our hostess for this week and she's chosen some lovely colors for us to create with.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Garden Variety and A Big Thank You.  I started out with a crumb cake card base, then added three banners in the colors from the challenge which I embossed using a woodgrain impressions plate then stamped my sentiment.  Then I added some certainly celery twill ribbon, twine and a scallop border just below the center of the card.  I used the coordinating die from the PTI Sending You stamp set and stamped my flower image, then die cut and stamped the watering can and added a flower shaped button with thread.
