Color Dare #95--Two Greens and an Orange and Blog Candy Alert

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare post!  This is Color Dare #95 and we are challenging you to create something using the following Close To My Heart colors:  Sunset, Olive and Lagoon.  (Of course you may substitute similar colors if you don't have the exact CTMH colors).

I must admit that I struggled with this color combination and that is why there is so little Lagoon on this card.  

My card follows this week's Try Stampin' on Tuesdays sketch challenge #168.  Here is the sketch:

I'm also entering this card in the Heart 2 Heart challenge "In the Garden" theme.
