Color Throwdown challenge # 80
This is my card entry for Color Throwdowns challenge #80 which I certainly did find quite a challenge.
The colours light green, rust and burgundy are not generally a concoction I would usually use - but I guess thats the whole idea !
I raided my paper stash (which took nearly a whole morning!) and didn't find much that would fit the bill and was just thinking about a trip to my favorite craft shop, Capture The Magic, (poor me!!!!!) when I came across this patterned paper from Imagination Project called No Clue Whatsoever - which sealed the deal.
Although there is no "rust" colour in the paper I added a mat of orange and then the ribbon colours seemed to pull it all together.
The button is a spare one of an old coat (I love to recycle and re-use) and the ric rac was a little cut off which I saved from a past project - see I do use those little bits and bobs which my husband is always telling me off for keeping !
The border was created using my gorgeous new Martha Stewart border punch and the stamps I used are from the See-D's set Blooming Friendships.
Hope you like it x
