Tempting Soft Mustard...huh?

So did I grab your attention? I bet you are DYING to know what on EARTH I'm talking about! LOL! Well, I'm talking about my very unusual color combination that ended up on a card I made awhile back. Tempting Soft Mustard translates into a color combination of Tempting Turquoise, Soft Suede and More Mustard. Now seriously, would you have EVER chosen those colors DELIBERATELY for a card? Of course not! But when all was said and done, that is what my patterned paper led me to go with and you know what? Me Likey!

The layout for this card is actually a CASE (Copy and Steal Everything!) of THIS AMAZING CARD in the SCS gallery. I fell in love with her use of the Labels 8 Nestabilities and the rustic feel. And that's about all I carried into my own version of the card. I started by pulling out a RARELY used paper pad I snagged at Michaels wayyyy back when called "Autumn". It has some GORGEOUS paper that I typically only pull out in the fall. But there was just something about this patterned paper which begged me to use it. So imagine my surprise when it coordinated with three Stampin' Up colors!
The leaf branch and the sentiment are by Verve. I lightly went over the leaf with my Gold Spicca pen, but you can't tell unless the card is in the sun.

Card Details

So now I want to know...what are some of the weird color combinations you've ended up with when matching paper?
