Charbon is A Beautiful Thing

I was so so sad to see this charbon dp retire! I love it! Today's sketch on SCS was a Kick Stand. I wanted to use some of that dp but couldn't figure out what other colors to use with it. Finally, I decided on gable green and bordering blue. I just love this combination! The flower and sentiment are from A Beautiful Thing set.
Recipe:
Stamps: A Beautiful Thing
Paper: Charbon dp, gable green, bordering blue, very vanilla
Ink: basic gray, gable green, bordering blue
Accessories: corner rounder, stamp-a-ma-jig, 1/4" circle punch, certainly celery brads, certainly celery 5/8" ribbon
