color throwdown 80...

Hello everyone!  Are you ready for another Color Throwdown?  This weeks colors are light green (I used river rock or sage shadow would be good too), rust and burgundy.  The colors were inspired by the Vintage Valentine paper from Fancy Pants.  Danielle and Tammy both used it on their samples and it is a really pretty strip.  For my card I hunted through my scraps until I found a bit of Stampin' Up! Ginger Blossom designer paper and used that for the base of my design.  I wanted to make the Scripture on this card the focal point so I just added a couple of layers of color and a fancy border from Martha Stewart around it and some simple embellishments.
 
Make sure you pop over to the rest of the teams blogs.  They have created some fun stuff.

What I used:
bravo burgundy, really rust, river rock, very vanilla card stock
SU Ginger Blossom designer paper
Versafine black stamp pad
SU river rock stitched grosgrain ribbon
jumbo brads of unknown origin
Martha Stewart deep edge punch
