Good Things..

Hello there! Sorry i've been more MIA than usual this week but my mom is still with us and though she is mobile and stuff now, I find myself hanging out with her more than anything else. :)

I did manage to make this little creation for this week's Color Throwdown. Laura is this week's hostess and she chose these fab colors:

They DO match oh so perfectly to the Stella Rose papers, so I went with that. I decided to make a more masculine card since I have so few of those. I actually think this card could go either way. It was the chevron pattern on the orange paper that made me lean towards masculine. Speaking of chevrons - does anyone know who makes a chevron border punch?? Is there such a beast? I have seen single chevron's but not a border style punch. If you know of one, please let me know. Ok, so on to my card:

It's so simple, but I like it. :) Well, thanks for stopping by! Laters...

Stamps: Through the Trees (Papertrey); Big Wish (Verve)
Card Stock: Kraft, Stella Rose dsp (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Really Rust
Extras: Ribbon, Mat Stack 4 die, and button (Papertrey)

I really like that patterned paper Keva, but the ribbon is what really jumps out at me on this one. I love how you just clipped the ends front and back.

You sure know how to throw down some color too. I especially adore the ribbon and button treatment. The MS4 shadowing is very cool as well. Lovely card Keva.

Fabulous use of the colour combo! Chevrons are fabulous hey? I have never seen a punch before, I'm sure if one doesn't exist it will soon.
This is a gorgeous card. So simple and pretty, but masculine. :)

I hope your Mom is recovering well.
