Embellish Magazine challenge

Embellish Magazine's newest challenge is really appealing to me!  Here's the photo inspiration showing the colors we're to use;  the other requirement is to use patterned paper.


Here's my entry - I ADORE these colors together; they're so rich!


supplies: kraft,camel and dark brown card stock, Design Papers from My Mind's Eye "Four Miles Stripe" (I buy it by the ton at Hobby Lobby) and Stella & Rose Hattie pad, Hero Arts CL495 Blossom Art, CL493 Live Live, Anita's Teddy Bear ink, Papertrey Ink flower die, brown fabric flower, gold pearls, Sizzix Branch with Leaves die, EK Success diamond scallop edge punch, machine-stitch zig-zag


And again, I'm entering this into Simon Says Stamp and Show's challenge: Anything Goes.
