Color Cue {13}

Welcome to Wplus9 Design's Color Cue {13}!
This color story came right from the creative genius of Miss Kerrianne Gwin.  Gorgeous!  So, how about a little inspiration to get you started?
I started, this card, by printing and cutting my wagon template on and from Basic Grey cardstock; dry embossing it with the woodgrain texture; and giving it a couple of Cricut-cut, Basic Black, cardstock wheels, whose centers were embellished with black brads.
I, then, stamped, in Jet Black ink, paper-pieced, and hand-cut all my Ever After flowers, leaves, and buds, whose stems were colored with Certainly Celery ink, on and from various, green and yellow, patterned papers and adhered them, in the wagon, some flat and others with dimensionals.
Finally, I stamped the "HELLO" sentiment, from Spring Post, in Basic Black ink, on Whisper White cardstock...
distressed its edges with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks; framed it with Daffodil Delight cardstock; thread it with a Honeydew, twine hanger; and adhered it, cockeyed, just right of center and hanging from the side of the cart.
Now, it's your turn!  But before you run get inky, please check out what my fellow, creative, design team members have in store, for you all, today.  Then, you have until Thursday, April 7, 2011, at 10:59 pm EST, to link up your takes.  Have a terrific Tuesday, everyone!
