Mojo Opus Throw Down- 3 in 1!

Good morning stampers! I am sooo happy summer has officially begun for us and it's been great so far! After my middle daughter got out of school, we ran up to the high school (YIKES!! HIGH SCHOOL!!)for a volleyball meeting for my oldest daughter and then I came home and STAMPED FOR HOURS!! No homework to worry about, what time we eat dinner, who showered and still needs to and making sure little kids are in bed and asleep by their school bed time!!!! Yippee!! I am sure this blissful feeling will disappear quickly after a couple days of bickering kids, but for now we are GOOD!

Today's card combines three challenges in one! Yes, THREE! It's a record for me! I combined the Color Throw Down colors of the week with the Mojo Monday sketch and the challenge over at the Order of the Opus Gluei is " How does your garden grow?"
I also managed to use another soon to be retired stamp set, Heartfelt Thanks. The Mojo Monday sketch this week is a longer rectangular card so I measured a business sized envelope and made my card just a little smaller so I have an envelope that fits.
I started out with a Whisper White cardstock base and added a panel of Raspberry Tart DSP and Tempting Turquoise stamped with one of the flower images from the HEartfel Thanks stamp set in Versamark ink for a light watermark look. I adhered a strip of Whisper White between the two panels and stamped my background piece in Cameo Coral and matted it with Kiwi Kiss.
My main image is stamped with Kiwi Kiss and Cameo Coral with Basic Black for the sentiment. The "congratulations" stamp is from Birthday Hugs and Wishes, another retiring stamp set (but one I will keep!)inked in Black Stazon and punched with the Sneak Peak Modern Label Punch. I layered that onto a piece of Kiwi Kiss punched with the Scallop Oval Punch (yes, that made it into the new catalog!) The final touch is two Kiwi Kiss Buttons from the Button Bouquet collection with teeny strips of Raspberry Tart DSP through the button holes adhered with Mini Glue Dots.

I wasn't sure at first about this card-Cameo Coral is not one of my faves! What do you think?

I hope you have a terrific day! Thanks for stopping by!
