Cheers (way to go) - Color Challenge (CCMC195)

I've been a long-time admirer of Mary Brown's work and have contemplated off & on to join in on the challenges she & Connie Babbert post each week.  No time like the present, eh?

This week was a color challenge (CCMC195)... Poppy Parade, So Saffron & Basic Gray.  The samples were inspiring so I decided to dive right in. Ta da!

Products used (everything is from SU! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp sets: Delightful Dozen; Cardstock: Basic Gray, So Saffron;
Patterned Paper:  Poppy Parade DSP Stack;
Inks: Basic GrayPunches: Scallop Trim;  
  Ribbon: Basic Gray Satin, White Baker's Twine;  
Sizzix:  Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder;  
Embellishments:  Everyday Enchantment Brads;  
Other: Pop Dots (American Crafts), Scotch ATG.
I likely would have never paired these colors so I'm glad I did it. Hopefully I'll find the time to keep doing some of these challenges.  

Thanks for taking a peek!
