Colour Create #87 - Red, Cream and Sage Green

Hi there!!
I'm back after a little blogging break - needed some time to recharge the batteries before getting back into the swing of creating again. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.

It's Edna's turn to post this fortnight's Colour Create Challenge #87 - Red, Cream and Sage. What gorgeous colours!! Here is her inspiration pic for you:

5 January - Challenge 87 - Edna - cream, sage, red

This week's challenge is being sponsored by:

and the winner will receive a $5 voucher to spend in store.

For my card I decided to use Rustic Cream for my base and then some gorgeous paper from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop collection with Real Red cardstock added to the bottom section. I tied some twill ribbon around the join and then added a Pure Poppy flower button threaded with twine.
The sentiment is from Birthday Balloon Jolinne stamped in Rustic Cream ink and heat embossed with clear powder. It's a bit smudgy looking as I dropped the ink pad right on this section and did my best to clean it all away!
My image is from AnnaBelle stamps - Lil Molly's Flowers, coloured with Copics and paper pieced with more Thrift Shop paper and some sage cardstock. She was then cut out with my oval nesties and framed with my scallop oval nesties. Finally she was adhered to the card with foam dimensional tape.

My card was so late (I didn't check the date and though we had another week before the challenge started!) so the inside hasn't been done on this card yet.

I am entering this card into Ribbon Carousel Challenge's RCC34 - Anything Goes as well:
