Color Throwdown Challenge #346

Hello everyone!! I hope you have had a fun filled week!!! We have been entertaining the Grands...sleep-overs, softball games, eating out...don't ya just love summer!!! It's been in the 90's here with no rain...yikes!! I better water my poor thirsty plants in the morning!! It's either feast or famine around here...LOL!! Anyway...
It's Wednesday and time for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!! Barbara is our hostess and she has picked some pretty earthy colors for us this week!! 

My card features two Taylored Expressions die sets: Various Vases and Silhouette Stems 4. The vase was cut out of Toffee cardstock and embossed with the TE Burlap Embossing Folder. The flower was first cutout of Granny Smith cardstock and then again out of pink patterned paper. The pink flowers were cutout and adhered over the green was then adhered to the back of the vase and the then adhered to the Sugar Cube cardstock

The background was splattered with Pink Passion Reinker and the sentiment from the TE Bloomin Boots stamp set was stamped with Memento Gray Flannel. The scrap paper flags and the green flower center gems finish it off.
