One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Color Throwdown # 449

Hi friends!
Well 8th grade graduation is done and high school graduation is done and so is the party I had for my grandson who finished the high school years!  Now I can kick back and relax and enjoy the garden and clean the hummers and the butterflies and the beautiful dragonflies zip around the yard! I need to get busy on some card making because I am going to be gone a lot this summer!
I will be home the third week in July but gone again until August 14...I will keep you posted on my whereabouts through FB if you are interested!
So this card is for the Color Throwdown Challenge.
I used watercolor paper and my zigs to color the flowers and leaves.  The little berry balls were actually colored with the orange distress ink pens.  My sentiment is from the PTI Pen & Ink.
Yes, my gingham (An MFT stamp from Textile Background) is brown, stamped with PTI chocolate brown as is the sentiment.  It does look a little black in the picture, but it isn't. 

Heart Hugs, friends!
