Embellish Vintage Color Challenge

Just stopping in today with a card for the Embellish Challenge...

I love these colors!  I didn't know how exactly I would use them....but I love them!  Even that orange color!  If you follow my blog, you may know how orange is a challenge for me!  But I think I did ok with it this time...what do you think?

I took some light green ribbon that I got from someone on Ebay and colored it with a darker green Copic!  I love how Copics can give you whatever color embellishment you need on a moments notice!

  1. Yeah, I think these colors look great together on your card. Great layout..I really like the way your second panel is so much smaller than the first. That looks really cool especially since it is popped up. Really pretty card!
