Colour challenge 11 – in the nick of time

I've been really looking forward to another of Kristina's challenges & when I saw the colours for this week, I was pretty excited. Anyhow, I've no time to waffle this morning. Here's the inspiration pic: And here's my card:
It's very simple, but I like it. The colours of course are rose red, so saffron, old olive, going gray & whisper white. The sets I used are 'In the Spotlight' (hostess lvl 2), 'Polka Dot' background & 'Polka Dots & Paisley' (greeting).

The base is rose red. I stamped the polka dot background in so saffron & added pierced strips of saffron & olive on more rose red. The stamped flower is from 'In the Spotlight' & all the large flowers are punched out with the 5 petal flower punch (I LOVE matching punches!). The small saffron flower was punched with the spring bouquet punch. The flower pieces are all raised on dimensionals & I added an olive brad (Earth Elements® pack) in the centre. The greeting is stamped with going gray.

OK, hope you like my attempt. Have to run now. Happy Sunday to you all!
