Psalm 37:4 for Ani-Verve-Sary Color Challenge

There was a big package of Verve stamps waiting for me when I got home yesterday, and providentially Verve is celebrating their anniversary this month with a whole slew of challenges.

This card is for the color challenge: pinks, greens, browns and neutrals. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to use these papers. They are from CTMH's new holiday line called Pear & Partridge. I'm using one of the less 'holiday' sheets, but the colors are just perfect don't you think?

I don't usually use such a bold/busy pattern for card backgrounds, so I kept the rest of the card kind of CAS.

There's a little bit of leather trim that accents the center strip of paper, and then some mocha opaques accent the die cut, which is from the new Cricut Artiste cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by!
