Happy Harvest

Have you ever had a color combo you struggle with? I love the look of black and orange together and particularly at this time of year but I just can't seem to get it right! Either I have too much black or too much orange and my card just looks downright scary! In the right context, that might not be a bad thing, right? LOL... So when I got out this Gina K. Designs stamp set, I decided to pull out some decidedly Halloween toned paper and take it more toward a harvest theme... Not sure if it worked out but I like it! And I hope you do too! Hope your week is starting off well! Make it a great one!
