Here's an elegant color combination from Paper Players.

The design team has some beautiful samples to get you inspired check them out here, this is mine;

I wanted to use some of my papers that haven't seen the light of day in quite a while.  I found this very pretty basic gray, baha breeze paper in the designer pack Urban Garden.  The paper was so pretty I wanted to highlight it with just minor additions.  The two layer label was first stamped in baja breeze then versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder, here's a close-up of the embossing, isn't it pretty? (It's hard to catch the shimmer and get a good photo at the same time, but you can definitely see the embossing.

I thought black velvet ribbon would look nice on this card, but when I checked (was sure I had some) didn't find any, but I did find some nice black felt which I cut into strips with my trusty paper cutter and adhered the strip to the back of the label added a couple of embellies and that was it.

Hope you take the time to leave a comment letting me know your thoughts on my card.

Gorgeous! Perfect take on the colors, and that sentiment panel is just the prettiest thing, especially embossed. I'll bet that felt looks terrific too....a nice bit of texture on your fabulous card! Thanks for playing with us this week at the Paper Players!
