Cardabilities #51

I created this card using the fabulous Cardabilities sketch #51

I combined it with the Play Date Cafe's most current challenge - PDCC123.  I needed to use Teal, Electric Green, Tangerine, and Jeans.  I must admit, I had to think about this one for a few days.  I made a trip to one of my favorite stores - The Pine City Scrapbooking Company this week.  While I was there, I came across the floral paper that had Tangerine and Teal.  So all I had to do was add Electric Green and Jeans to the mix.  I also found some buttons that coordinated with the colors in my stash. 

At the Catered Crop, the featured ingredient for the Recipe Swap is Stitching.  I added some interest by stitching around the outside of my card.  I also stitched the small button right on the sentiment.  I faux stitched the other two buttons on the card.

Paper:  Bloom - Authentique
Cardstock:  Outdoor Denim, Pear, Colonial White - Close to My Heart (CTMH)
Ink:  Sunset, Outdoor Denim - CTMH
