H2H Color Challenge

Well - there is a great challenge for cards using these colors:


So I decided to make a card for the challenge. I wanted to put a different twist on Christmas so this is what I came up with:
I used Honey cardstock for the base and then heavily ink distressed it in the same color. I dry embossed the diamond pattern in the Autumn Terracotta cardstock and then sanded it. I then added a very fine line of liquid applique to the edge of the New England Ivy cardstock mount and heat set it. The postage stamp is paper pieced to get the 3 colors on the one image. The images are stamped on colonial white cardstock. I then used a waterbrush to color in the images. Gold photo hangers and colonial white grosgrain ribbon tied it closed. The stamp set I used is from the new Autumn/Winter idea book D1449 - Father Christmas.
Hope you like it :O)
