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!
