Color Throwdown Challenge 3

Color Throwdown

Wow, week 3 already!  I had fun with this color combination that Broni chose!  I almost did a fall-themed card, as I have some new fall stamps that I am itching to play with, but I saved them for another time.  Instead, I used some other new stamps!  So here's my take on the throwdown:
