Pinks and brown

Here is the photo inspiration for this week's CR84FN challenge:


Here's my take on the challenge - love the chocolate and pinks together, though my 2 pinks aren't that different in tone.  I paper-pieced the large flower, using solid and printed papers, adding an extra darker pink layer all around the edges, and dry-embossed the background in a tiny flower design. 


Supplies: chocolate, orchid pink light and dark cardstocks, the Paper Studio Coco & Pink SM Polka Dot (Hobby Lobby), other unknown pp (flower center), Hero Arts S5485 Many Petals, CL380 Truly Appreciated, twine, Sizzix little flowers embossing folder, twine, tiny pink buttons from Michaels
