Our "Crafters of Faith Group" mini color challenge

Hi there,
Our leader, Kelly  challenged us to  to create using the color combos given to each of us by another blog member. Kelly gave me the combo ...
 PinkBurgundy (Cobbler, etc!), and Black!

well alrighty then - how fun to create just to create. I am on quest to use only scraps and/or designer paper that I have had for ages...this piece from Graphic 45 has been sitting in my designer paper bin for quite a long time! and I've had this flower in my stash also for quite some time....hence, my card was born LOL

now the bad part is I don't know the name of this particular paper from Graphics and I don't remember what punch I used to make the flower....sorry!

I sponged the dp with Memento Rose Bud, and I do know the cardbase is Cranberry Tart from GKD, also used Spellbinders "Twisted Metal Tags and Accents" for tag and embellishment behind flower, pearls, scrunched burgundy seam binding (love that stuff) and colored lightly with Copic RV21...

went for the vintage look - hope you like!

hugs and blessings,
