Spring Branch

When I saw the colour combo over at Color Throwdown this week, I was instantly reminded of these Papermania Persimmon papers.  They have a lovely, vintage feel to them so I decided to go a bit shabby with this card.
The stamp is a Sheena Douglass, Little Bit Sketchy one which I've stamped in Bundled Sage Distress Ink and coloured with Promarkers.
The leafy border punch is Martha Stewart which I've layered up with a Persimmon border sticker and some ribbon.
The flower is from my stash, I think they're Papermania, as is the gem brad.
A few gems and it's finished.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Mojo Monday - #233 - sketch
Color Throwdown - #184 - colour combo
Cute Card Thursday - #209 - anything goes

  6. Gorgeous card Wendy and love the colour combo.

    Funnily enough I was playing with grey and yellow as well yesterday, it's not a combo I would have though of until I bought some new Kaiser DP's and it really does work well, the grey is that bit softer than black.

    Have a good Sunday.
