Colour Create Challenge #77

I'm back with my card for this fortnight's Colour Create challenge. My card is very late due to my really bad bout of the flu, but as I had nearly finished my card, I decided to post it anyway. Here is the inspiration pic for this fortnight's challenge:

11 Aug - Challenge 77 - Liz blue, green,white,red and brown
Liz has come up with a lovely colour combo - red, green, brown, blue and white with the option of adding texture. This is what I have created:

As soon as I saw this colour combo, I instantly thought of my Green Tea Leaves paper which has all of these colours incorporated. I cut three strips of paper and adhered them to my white layer which had been embossed with my Argyle Impression plate. I added some Chocolate Chip ribbon along the join. I stamped my sentiment from Inside and Out: Birthday in Chocolate Chip ink and die cut it with my circle nestabilities.  I then matted this layer on some Old Olive cardstock cut with my Blossoms 4 die. Below the sentiment I stamped the two tiny leaf images from the Mat Stack 1 Collection in Old Olive ink and added a red rhinestone to the centre.

Have a great weekend!
