Color Inspiration #15

Another week, another color inspiration challenge...

I'm still getting over whatever "bug" I had last weekend, but I felt good enough to drag out my supplies and attempt a card. I have to admit, I like it, lol. Maybe the "bug" inspired me, lol

Everyone knows how big a fan of Kristina Werner's I am. She's got such good taste and I love the color combos she comes up with. And this week's combo is no exception.




So I pulled out all the colors...and then remembered that I had a card already made! YES!!! My dad's birthday is coming up, and I had bought a new set of stamps from PaperTrey, and I was trying to get a jump on birthday cards, I made up a few. I just had to change out the paper to Really Rust, and voila!



Here's my submission. I really hope you enjoy it!
