365 Cards: Wacky Color Wednesday!

It's Wednesday again and I was given such a fun challenge by Pam from 365 Cards. I can't even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed it. So, I won't tell you, I will just show you! Today's challenge is called "Wacky Color Wednesday." You are required to use Orange, Purple and Green together. I admit I was stumped for awhile and was worried I might end up making a Halloween card with those colors, but when I realized I didn't have to use bright colors, it all came together. So here is the card I made:

I just got the Background Basics: Retro set by Papertrey Ink and it is SO fun to play with. (I used the lines stamp). I stamped the vine and added leaves and blossoms with a little glitter (which might not show up here)
Here is a little close up to see the sentiment and hopefully the glitter. I looped the ribbon twice and added a button. This little card was just delightful to make, and I suggest you try the challenge yourself! So head on over to 365 Cards and link up your creation. I hope you have as much fun as I did. I can't wait to see what you create! 
Happy Crafting!

Very elegant card for the occassion, it is nice to make this type of card in different colours.

Thank you for you lovely comments on my blog.
