The Play Date Cafe Challenge 63

Good Morning All!

Wow! Did you all think this was a challenge, huh?! Well, it certainly was for me! This combination of colors would not be in my usual craft making. After I was finished, I thought... hmmmm... maybe I should have done a Christmas theme. But, here is my card. The running water spoke to me and so I wanted to go more spring/summer. I added glossy accents to leaves on the card to make it look like rain. I found the big(ugly) green button in my stash(my button jar from a flea market)and tried to "pretty" it up with some gems. Anyways, thanks for taking a peek and I enjoy any comments! Take care and have a great day!
