Clear Dollar Weekend Color Challenge

It's the weekend once again, but this time I may have more time to play in the evenings. . .if I get my chores done.  My husband is in the field for the next 10 days, so I should have time to hang out in the 'craft cave'.  Because it's the weekend, that means it is time for the Clear Dollar Weekend Color Challenge over at Papercraftplanet.  Our hostess this weekend is the very talented Alex, and she chose the colors Riding Hood Red, Blush Blossom, and Certainly Celery.

I just got my Walk in the Park Stamp of the Month set from Clear Dollar the other day and have been waiting to ink it up.  Along with it I got some Flower Soft Summer Mix, so I thought this would be the perfect chance to use it.  I decided to make a gate fold card and had forgotten just how fun these are to make.
Stamps:  Walk in the Park (May SOM), Beautiful Butterflies (both from CD Stamps)
Ink:  Certainly Celery, Blush Blossom, Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, Basic Gray
Paper:  Certainly Celery, Blush Blossom, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red DSP
Accessories:  Flower Soft -- Summer Mix, sponge, Water Dew Drops, pink striped ribbon (from CD Stamps), Labels 4 Nestabilities
