Colour Combo

Morning All!
Today I have a card to show you that I made using a lovely Elizabeth Bell topper. At the moment I am enjoying making cards with fresh, bright colours so I have decided to enter this in the Charisma Cardz Challenge which this week is 'Your Favourite Colour Combo' - so mine is orange and green. It's great to move outside your comfort zone and try out new colour combinations - sometimes colours that you had not thought of putting together work perfectly and give your cards a whole new look!

I layered the card with Fancy Pants papers matted on to tan card stock and used my Martha Stewart doiley border punch (an oldie but a goodie) - to create the border. I decided to make my own punched flowers from the papers and inked them with Distress inks before adding a gem to the centres and corners of the card. I also found the perfect matching Maya Road ribbon to complete the layout ' before I decorated the inside of the card to match.

Hope you like it! Why not pop over to the challenge blog and join in the fun!
Have a great weekend!
