PDCC45 with Julie Ranae

I almost sat this challenge out because the colour combo stumped me...I have a hard time being inspired by the colour mustard. Yellows of any colour just aren't my favorite, but I couldn't pass up the challenge because I am officially addicted to the Play Date Cafe. Anyhoo, here is the inspirational photo:

I really liked the barrel in this photograph, especially in this colour scheme. Translating that into a card was a whole different story. I think I started and scraped 3 different cards before I ended up with something I liked. Not to mention I really had to do some digging to find anything with the colour mustard in it (I think I used my last scrap of cardstock in mustard for the Colour Horribilis challenge hehe). And as I sit here typing this I'm looking at my bulletin board of materials and staring back at me are mustard coloured Prima roses! oops :)
Well, here is my card:
