Blogger's Challenge #166: Color Challenge

When I first saw the colors for this week's challenge (Red, Green and Yellow) all I could picture was various flags of different countries with those same colors!  But, the inspiration hit me with a sneak peek from the upcoming Holiday Mini catalog!

I used a new stamp set called French Foliage...aren't these leaves just gorgeous?  Have I got ideas for this set!!!  My choices for colors were More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.  The background is simple Vellum Cardstock run through my Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions folder. 

I made this card for our next door neighbor who will be celebrating his 80th birthday this Saturday.

Please take time to see what the other players contributed this week!  Happy Friday!
