LNS Colour Challenge #42 and TSSC92 layout challenge

I'm on a roll here with challenges
see what happens when you have too much
time on your hands LOL.

First challenge is the
Stampin! Up Late Night Stampers Colour Challenge
Really Rust, Ruby Red and Old Olive
I combined it with a layout challenge
Click on any photo to get a larger view

The card fell over when I tried to photograph it

Inkpads and cardstock -Really Rust, Ruby Red, Old Olive
Ribbon: Old Olive
Stamp: Snow Swirled

Ruby Red red on old olive cs

Basic black ink on Rub Red

Embossed the tree in versamark and gold ep
onto Really Rust cs

gold embossed the middle sized decor
and stamped the little decor in basic black

Sentiment was embossed in black

I had a hard time using these colours together,
I almost gave up participating in the challenge.
It didnt look right and incomplete so I
had a hard time choosing which embellishment

I persisted and voila, it all came together

I also had a hard time photographing it
so the colours would show
so I took it outside and it was blowing
and here you can see as I clicked
the card flew off, nice picture of the flower though.

I tried another combination with the colours without layers
and this is what I got.
