Hydrangea Card

This week's challenge at Serenity Scrappers is a colour challenge: purple, blue, and green.  This really was a challenge for me, but I finally figured out what to do.
I used Walk In My Garden to cut the wheelbarrow at 2.5.  The hydrangeas were cut at 4.5.  I used different coloured purple cardstock for the hydrangeas and inked everything with SU's Purely Pomegranate.  (The wheelbarrow was inked with Chocolate Chip.)  I popped the wheelbarrow and the flowers.  I cut green and blue cardstock to size, and embossed the blue with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots.  I then used a MS border punch for the hydrandgea border and a MS 3-in-1 punch for the extra flowers.  I tied a ribbon around the punched border.  I also used a Gelly Roll Pen to add the centers to the hydrangeas.  The sentiment was stamped with a SU stamp and punched out with SU punches.  I also cut some photo corners with an EK Success punch and added gems to the middle of those.
