Sweet Succulents for the Color Throwdown #431

Hello Family, Friends and Stampers!
I must be a glutton for punishment...Mr. Hubster
and I went to Lowe's to get 'Weed n' Feed' and 'Potting Soil'.
I also picked up a 'Lavender Plant'.
After Lowe's, we went to Wal-Mart and
I bought 2 different Tomato Plants,
that are now in their pots,
and 2 six packs of 'Petunias'
for the pots on my front porch,
I planted all of them when we came home!
Still very sore from the yard work this weekend!
And now the plantings!
I should be good in a couple of days.
Ha! I can work inside, in the Craft Room instead!
(While I am doing Laundry)!

Today's Card is a Color Challenge.
The Challenge had an inspiration photo next to
the colors highlighted...the photo reminded me of the
'Succulent Garden' DSP and the
'Vertical Garden Project Kit'  
Stampin'Up! has in the
'Occasions Catalog'!

Here is the Challenge!
The colors I matched to this are:
Mint Macaron-Old Olive-Sweet Sugarplum-Delightful Dijon

Isn't this gorgeous? It looks like the 'Vertical Garden'
Project Kit on page 22 of the 'Occasions Catalog'!
All it needs is the 'banner'!
Here is my Card!

I tried to make it look like a box of 'Succulents'!

Here is a close-up of the Greeting and an attached Succulent!
I stamped and die-cut every succulent!
Here is the inside of my Card!

A close-up of the succulents inside!
They were stamped and die-cut too!

Here is my Card with it's stamped to match envelope!
