Lavender and Rootbeer?

Purple and browns are not normally colors I would put together.....but as I was looking thru my stash of ribbons this morning, I found this satiny rootbeer ribbon....yes, that's the name of it....don't you just love names for ribbons...yummy.....so I paired it with my mostly lavender color scheme on this card:

Sending Love

It looks a little dark here, but the whole look of the card actually came out pretty good IRL....pretty much all stamps and papers are from Hero Arts!
