Did you ever read Take Ten crafters' magazine? Every now and then I pick it up at the local craft store. Inside, it has a page divided into 4 sections of cs for you to try out. I usually forget it's in there, but I loved how the paper used both red and burgundy, which is a color combo I never would have thought of putting together. I used Bravo Burgundy and Real Red cs and ink, along with some Bravo Burgundy ribbon and some pewter brads. Just for fine, try using some off-beat colors on your next card! Have fun and be creative.
