CTD193 - Sending You Sunshine

Hello there!  It's hard for me to believe that 20 years ago today I was marrying the man who was and still is my best friend.  I'm lucky to have found someone who is not only a wonderful husband but a great father to our three children.  If my husband is reading this by chance, Happy Anniversary honey you're the best!

Today is Wednesday and time for another fun Color Throwdown ChallengeWanda is our hostess with the mostess this week and she's got a fabulous bright color combo for all of us to play with.
For my card, I used the PTI stamp set Simple Sunflower with the coordinating dies and the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge for my layout.  I started with a pink passion card base (I didn't have magenta), then added a 2 1/2" x 5" embossed panel of summer sun.  Then I added 1 1/8" band of the pumpkin pie through the middle and tied on my ribbon.  My stamped panel is 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" with one sunflower and leaf die cut and popped up.
