Burgundy, Bayou and Sky

Last night was my first time stumbling upon this cool color combo. I happened to have these three packs lying on my desk from unrelated projects, and thought they looked so pretty together. What do you think?

For this card, I used a sketch I found on Julia Stainton's blog, Belle Papier. The large flower is from the Pretties kit. For the flower center, I used the rhinestone brad/jumbo eyelet pairing I've been seeing a lot of lately on Beate's blog, fresh & fun. The only stamping was the swirly flourish thingie from the Priceless stampset. The rest of the card is just layering and paper piercing. I keep resisting the urge to add more to this card for fear of ruining it :)

Supplies (all Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Priceless
Paper: Blue Bayou, Whisper White, Bravo Burgundy, Soft Sky
Ink: Whisper White
Accessories: Rhinestone brad ("Ice"), pewter jumbo eyelet, pretties kit, crop-a-dile, paper piercer, 1" circle punch.
