Burgandy Bella

I am in love with this weeks colors at The Color Throwdown blog!!

Bravo Burgandy
Bordering Blue
Not Quite Navy (I got my navy's mixed and used Night of Navy :)

Bordering Blue was one of SU's colors I never even paid attention to until I started color challenges. Now it's one of my favorite blues!! I stamped the flower from Bella Blossoms in Versamark in on Bravo Burgandy. I like the soft look of it. It was kind of hard to get a good photo (it's much prettier in person). I used my new lace punch from Martha Stewart and I'm blaming Cindy Haffner and Amy Sheffer for this. They make such gorgeous cards with this punch, I had to have it :) And I'm warning you now, I went to hobby lobby last week and ribbon was 50% off. I bought 10 rolls of gingham ribbon, if you hate gingham, this is the wrong blog for you...lol!!! I love this ribbon (obviously).
I couldn't resist distressing the edges of the blue and burgandy with my scisors. I wanted a worn feel since these colors just seemed so classic!!! Thanks for stopping by!
