Pretty Palette #19 - My Time Made Easy

Happy Sunday!  Are you cooling off yet?  It's getting a little cooler here, but it's still way too hot for me with no air conditioning in my house and no pool!  :-(

But maybe this will cool you off a bit.  The Pretty Palette color challenge from My Time Made Easy is a pretty subtle and cool color combination.
I just adore this color combination!  I picked up the patterned paper I used on my card a while ago at my LSS, Buffalo Stamps & Stuff, and that's where the inspiration for the color combination came from.  Here's how I used it on my card.
The digital stamp set I used on this card is Tending the Garden from MTME.  I colored it in GIMP using the challenge colors.  I printed out the image twice, and used the second one to cut out the watering can and flower to pop them up for more dimension.  I added some Star Dust Stickles to the flower center and the bee's wings.  I layered SU's So Saffron grosgrain and Basic Gray tafetta ribbons.  The bow was made using the Bow Easy tool (love that thinge!).  The layout was last week's Sweet Sunday sketch #126, and I'm entering it into the Trigger Tuesday challenge for the use of the yellow (and the little bit of black I have in there).  You can see more designs using these colors on the MTME blog and by visiting the blogs of the Pretty Palette team.
I hope you play along with us this week!  I can't wait to see what you create!  Thanks for stopping by today!
