Color Throwdown 11

CTD11 Banner

Wow, don't you love that banner!  Kisa Peters is our computer whiz, and she surprises us each week with her fun creations!  Thanks Kisa!  And she is our hostess this week as well with this great color combination for Color Throwdown 11:

CTD11 Swatch

I have to admit that at first I did not think I would like these colors together, but as soon as I started playing with them, I decided I LOVE them!  I hope you do too and will play along as well.  Remember to link your creations in your comment, or if you upload to SCS, use the keyword CTD11.  Lots of possibilities for this combo:  So here is mine:

Color Throwdown 11

I have a very busy week ahead of me, so I needed something clean, simple & easy.  In fact, it's probably a little too simple--I think it needs something a little more, but just not sure.  The leaves were stamped, cut out, folded in half and put through a crimper on the diagonal.  I stopped just short of the stem, then took it out.  That gave them just a little added dimension!  Hope you like it, and make sure you check out what the others have come up with:

No, it isn't too simply. This style of card takes a lot of talent to produce--something I just can't do. It is so pretty, and of course I love your colour choice!
