Color Challenge at City Crafters

This week at "City Crafter" the challenge is a color challenge by Ros
Yesterday I spent the entire day in my gardens....
 
It was the most perfect day....
the temp was warm, it was breezey and the sun was in and out
making it not so hot...
 
 
when I first went out and stepped into my "Gator" "garage", I noticed one one of the baby
robins had fallen out of it's nest, so I picked it up and placed the little cutie pie back in...
then, while working I was serenated all day long with bird song...
it's amazing what you can hear and see if you pay attention...
I saw a bluebird land on a nearby branch, a family of ducks in the creek....
and heard my stepson's rooster crow....
and a farm a few roads over peacocks "scream" in the way that only peacocks can!!
It was a beautiful day to enjoy nature, making one glad to just be alive.....
of course there was also the bunny watching me planting my veggie garden ....
the little stinker has been out daily, just licking his lips I am sure....
so, my project for this challenge is some of what I saw and heard yesterday.....
Here is what I had orignally thought to do....
 
 
have you seen these dies yet?
they are by Sizzix...
I found mine at Hobbylobby, and with the 40% off coupon, how could I pass it up!!
But not enough time to put one together.....
 
Items used for my card are:
Impression Obsession Bunny dies
Memory Box Summer Border Die
Cardstock SU Baja Breeeze
