What's YOUR fave color combo?

Hello! The new theme at Cards In Envy challenge blog is "Favorite Color Combo." I went with one of my fave combos: peach and sage green.

I found the old photo online and "colorized" it a bit like they used long ago. I was going to color her dress peach; then I decided just to add a little color. The beautiful patterned paper is a 6x6 pack from A.C. Moorel I loved that I could use three patterns from the pad.

Here is the card I made for the Design Team:

DP: "Vintage Botanicals" by Love Nicole (A. C. Moore)
Really Reasonable Ribbon
Square Lattice ef by Stampin' Up
Stampin' Up word window punch
Come on and join the fun at Cards In Envy! Your card can be any size, as long as it meets the theme and is flat enough to fit in an envelope.
Thanks for stopping by!

An April showers paper-pieced card

Hi. I made this for a "Spring" challenge in a Facebook paper crafting group I belong to. I have always liked the Hambo Stamps digi, but this is the first time I paper-pieced the "umbrellas". The dp is a really pretty (and reasonably priced!) 6x6 pad from AC Moore called "Vintage Botanicals" by Love Nicole:
