The Challenge #50 - A Colour Challenge

I don't think anyone will be unhappy about the color combination for this week's Challenge ... take looky-loo at this beauty:

Ohhhh!  You can't know how much I want that pillow!  This goes right beside my obsession with linens.  A card based on its beauty will have to do:

A snippet of patterned kraft, just the right bit of red in the right spot on the perfect [hand made] Poinsettia! Peace is cut from the most wonderful silver foiled cardstock from 2014 - I sure hope they [Recollections] have repeated it this year.
 
I'm also hoping that you'll be inspired by our colour palette this week - see you in the gallery!  We're happy to have Joanne James is guesting this week - yay!

That lovely cushion would go perfectly in my lounge with my burlap curtains!!! And what a great card you have made using it as inspiration!!!! What a stunning poinsettia that is and the red centre is just the perfect little splash of bright colour on your card!!! The script bg and the die-cut sentiment is beautiful!!! A lovely creation, Michele!!!!
