Color Throwdown #99!!

Only one more week until our fabulous 100th challenge! I can't believe another Wednesday is upon us! Danielle is our hostess this week, but Barbara is filling in on the post as Danielle is enjoying some vacation time with her fam!
Here are this week's colors...

And here's how I put them together...

As you can see I started with this fabulous Verve set, added in some cork detail as my hills and I finally used my new linen texture plate from PaperTrey Ink. I have to say that thing is pretty freaking awesome! Another awesome thing is that cork paper. It's already got adhesive on it backed with a wax liner AND it's thin enough to use it in a punch. I have no idea who makes it, but I got it in the scrapbooking section at A.C. Moore. I feel like the rest of my card this week is very self-explanatory so I'm not going to go on about the deets! Ha! Except I will say that the ribbon was enhanced with my Copics as the blue was more of a Baja to start so I customized it to suit my needs. Love that!

Are you going to play too? I hope so! Make sure to visit the Color Throwdown blog to upload your card. As always, I'm looking forward to seeing your designs. Please also stop by and visit my fellow team member's blogs for more inspiration.
