Sending smiles across the miles

We were traveling last week to South Dakota and on the side of the road were wild flowers and I commented that they were the perfect colors for a card because it was the green stems with yellow and purple flowers and then it happened to be the colors of the Color Throwdown.  So I just HAD to make a card using what I think is natures natural color mix. I also have to work on my stash since my daughter still has a year of college left and I usually send her a card a week.  Also, my son will be attending college away this year too.  So my wonderful sentiment is from TLC.
