Down for the count

This week's Color Throwdown (ruby red, not quite navy and old olive) threw me down, stomped on me, chewed me up, spit me out, and just when I thought it was finished, it came back to cuff me in the ear. This was really tough for me and this is the second card I tried (not showing anyone the first one). I have a REALLY hard time with red and blue together. So I'm not totally happy with this but thought I would post it anyways.

Thanks (I think) to the ladies at Color Throwdown for the great (?) challenge. ;)

Card details:
Stamps: PTI Daily Designs and Daily Designs Sentiments
Paper: A Muse Fern and Apple Shimmer Couture, cream card stock
Ink: SU! Ruby Red and Brilliant Blue
Accessories: Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Foler, A Muse Palm Grosgrain stitched ribbon, random blue brad, EK Success 1.5 inch circle punch and 2 inch scallop circle punch


  1. Glenda, you crack me up! This is beautiful! Sorry that the colors threw you for a loop, but challenges make us grow! :D Your card is simple but effective--that image is just so pretty! Thanks for playing---be sure to come back again, I am sure you'll find a combo that isn't so hard on you!
