Mustard and Gold - Evergreen

 
Today I finally MADE A CARD!  I found a NEW blog challenge today and thought I'd try it out.
 
The layout comes from the brand new Fab Friday blog.
To find some colors to go with it I searched through some other blog challenges and found this at Just Add Ink - MUSTARD and METAL!



I used my favorite set "Evergreen" with the colors More Mustard and can you believe it - Summer Starfruit!!!!  With some black I think this makes a great color combo (and something a little different).  I stamped the trees with the two colors and then versamark with the outline image and embossed the trees and both sentiments in gold.  The sentiments are from the set "Beautiful Season".
The oval with clip is popped up.

I added a decorative edge (framelit) and some piercing.  I'm quite happy with how this turned out and I continue to LOVE this versatile stamp set (I even used it for a Christmas card this time!)
