Sunny red and yellow

When I saw the color combination for the Color Throwdown, I knew I had to play. 
 This is the result.  What inspired my from the inspiration photo were the striped pillows.  I recreated that look with a Clearsnap stencil and some red Stephanie Barnard spray.  
 When I cut the doily die, I didn't punch out all of the little pieces.  I liked the mix of some punched out and some not.  The leaves are Lawn Fawn stamps and the matching die. I colored the paper first with two colors of Distress Stain.  The button is from American Crafts a the sentiment word is a Paper Smooches stamp that I cut out.  
Here is the Color Throwdown combo.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Lovely card! What a great idea to leave some of the pieces of the doily intact--adds lots of dimension! Thanks so much for playing the Color Throwdown!
