Wetlands - Color Throwdown

Sometimes I get requests from someone to 
make them some cards.  Do you?
 My mom requested some thank-you notes for her birthday present 
from me, and since her birthday will be here soon, I decided to get busy.
The Color Throwdown Challenge was an interesting mix of colors:  
Strawberry Slush, Sahara Sand and Coastal Cabana.  
Here's what I have for my mom that I'm also going to 
enter into the Challenge:
Yep, I was inspired by their fabulous picture and the fact that my mom and dad 
have a cottage at the Lake.  That made this card perfect for my mom's thank-you 
notes due to their wonderful cozy lakeside cottage.
What I used:
Stamp Set - Wetlands (#126695)
Inks:  VersaMark; Strawberry Slush (#131178); Coastal Cabana (#131175), Sahara Sand (#126976).
Card Stock - Coastal Cabana (#131297); Whisper White (#100730); Strawberry Slush (#131295).
Basic Pearls (#119247) and Strawberry Slush Thick Baker's Twine (#135637); Blendabilities markers in Coastal Cabana (#131000); Stampin' Sponges (#101610); Heat Tool; Clear Embossing Powder.
