My card today is for our Color Throwdown challenge, combining Soft Suede, River Rock, Rose Red and Melon Mambo. Please check out the challenge details and play along with us by visiting the Throwdown blog!
For my card, I discovered that this paper from October Afternoon... one of my favorites actually, was a great match for these colors! I pulled out my Verses Rubber Stamps and chose to use this Cheer You Up stamp along with some pretty new Linen ribbon from Flourishes, a Prima flower, a leaf stick-pin (thanks Bar!) and the High Tea Doily Die-Namics from My Favorite Things.
My layout was inspired by the sketch at Card Positioning Systems this week, although my design took a turn and strayed somewhat from the sketch! Still, it was inspiring!
There's a little bit of plaid paper behind the ribbon, so those plaid "stripes" make this one fit for the Fan Club challenge this month, too! :)

Tammy! Your card is gorgeous! I love these papers and the beautiful sentiment. Your doily is delish! (wink, wink....wah-ink!)
