Papertrey Posse Color Challenge

Today Jessica issued a color challenge over on the Papertrey Posse blog. Here are the colors for the challenge:
I have to admit that when I first saw these colors I wasn't sure I was going to play along with the challenge. These colors together are more of an earthy pallete than what I normally use. I wasn't sure I could put something together that would work. But, a challenge is kinda like a Double Dog Dare-you just have to do it, or at least try. My brain just wouldn't quit trying to figure out what to do with this color challenge. Then it dawned on me that Autumn Abundance would be perfect for this pallete. I am so glad I did play along. I am now loving these colors together and I am very happy with how my card turned out! Thanks Jessica for making me step outside my color comfort zone! : )

Papertrey Ink- stamps (autumn abundance, through the trees), cardstock (summer sunrise, terracotta tile, enchanted evening, white), ink (enchanted evening), twine

Misc.-Nestabilities, Copic markers, adhesive pearls
