Colour Q Challenge #66

I am playing along with the Colour Q Challenge today! When I saw Arielle's colors I was super excited! This is a fantastic color combo but just a little out of my comfort zone! (I know I say that alot but I always reach for red...and black...and kraft!) :)

Here are the colors...


And here is my card...

That fantastic little flower is from the MFT die! I got that from my super sweet friend Amy! I love that thing! I just use a quilling tool to twist them up so tight! So fun!
