CTD205 - Smiles

It's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge.  This week the talented Joan is our hostess and she's chosen some lovely colors along with a pretty inspiration photo.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Natural Beauties and stamped the floral images from the set onto my background panel, then used a woodgrain impressions plate to give it some texture.  On top of that I added my lavender Mat Stack 4 die cut and stamped piece, ribbon and oval sentiment with buttons.  The butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies stamp set was die cut, stamped and adhered with glue dots to the lower right corner.
Supplies: Natural Beauties, Mat Stack 4 +die, Beautiful Butterflies + die, Oval dies, Woodgrain Impression plate, Ribbon, Buttons, Foam tape.
