Color Throwdown 113




Seems like forever since I've participated in a Color Throwdown! It's now Challenge #113.  It's interesting how close the plum and espresso are when side-by-side. (Click on the photo for a closer look.)


I made a plum card with an embossed layer of vanilla; the ribbon is espresso and the handmade paper flower is the same color as the card. The patterned paper is chocolate on vanilla, matted in plum. The flower was spritzed with gold Glimmer Mist and accented with Glitz Stickles.)

Evelyn, this is so elegantly simple and beautiful. The combination of colors is one I wouldn't think of, and you pulled it all together wonderfully. Thanks for the inspiration you share always...
