STV Color Challenge and CPS136

My week did not start off great.  I woke up Monday with a sore throat and a cold....too much garden work outside this weekend in the damp I guess. Later that morning, while I was on the computer I felt a bite on my leg. Must have been a spider that crawled up my robe....yes, was still in my robe...felt too yucky to dress. The bite began to itch a little but by afternoon my leg was swelling and I spent the day laying with a ice pack on my leg. My DH said at least the cold and bite coincided so I could recover from both at the same time. Tuesday morn, my leg had swollen a great deal more and it was difficult to walk. So another day spent with the ice pack and nursing my cold. My DH has been a great nurse keeping my ice pack cold and feeding me. Today, Wednesday my swelling has gone and I can walk again but the cold is still with me but not as bad. I finally feel good enough to sit here and  post a card that I made before the bite became so painful.

Theresa's color challenge on STV for this week are...
Fresh Asparagus (olive), Sweet Corn (yellow), Soft Sand (kraft or tan) Optional color: Chocolate Kiss

Here is the card that I made:
Using a sketch from Card Positioning: CPS136, I used Soft Sand CS as base and  then a layer of Chocolate Kiss CS wrapped with 2 ribbons strips..  I used Mini Sunflowers (yellow) digital paper from All About Autumn that I framed with green CS using corner punch. I stamped sentiment on Soft Sand with Rich Cocoa  and put on green mat. Corners were all rounded. Attached elements on to card. For final touch,  added a sunflower to the corner that was cut out of digital paper with nesties.
Colors all look better in real life than in pic.
