Grateful for You

Good morning!  It has been a LONG time since I've participated in a color challenge and it was just what I needed to make a card for you today.  This week's Color Throwdown is light green, rust, and burgundy - wow!  I can't honestly say that I have never put these 3 colors together - ever - but wow, they look amazing!

I picked this little leafy flower from PTI, but then I realized I don't have any rust or burgundy buttons to go with it, so I just stayed with white.  I really like the clean look it gives.

That's it for now - please stop back by and say hello.
Karen

  8. Funny you mention not having the right colored buttons so you just went with white because the buttons are what drew me in first.....lol. They are so sweet and this card is simply to die for! I agree....I wouldn't have thought of putting those colors together either (I am a child of the 70's and they remind me way to much of our home decor color scheme way back then....lol) But these colors all really work with this card! I've been sick, wanna send it to me? LOL
