Inkspiration Colour Challenge #26

Hello on this Inkspiration Challenge Friday - it's a colour challenge this week.  And I'm so excited about these colours that Makeesha has picked out.  I'll share that further down the post.  Here are the fabulous colours to work with:
And here's my card:

It's not often that I don't add a doily or two, to my creations.  Today is no exception.  Whilst checking out the colours, I realized that I have the exact colours listed in my Etsy store - you can check here.
How amazing is that!!
Onto my card:  I've used a base in Kraft, then layered Real Red and Basic Grey cardstock.  I've used the Eyelet border punch along the bottom edge of the grey and also stamped a doily pattern for a background.
Then I've added a strip of Designer Series paper in Basic Grey - I love the different patterns in this pack. 
I've layered a paper lace doily in the background too.
For the embellishments: doilies from my Etsy store
I've created a flower with the coffee colour doily, adding layers of bookprint and a brad to the centre.  There's also a pin created using the Pretties Kit from Stampin'up.  The smaller grey doily has tiny flowers layered together, created with the SU 3-flower punch.
I've also added tiny swirls of pearls and the sentiment is from Amy Rysavy - All That Scraps.
Here's a closer look:

Well, I was really happy with the final look of this card - it's fun to use embellishments and dress up your card, making it very unique.  I hope I've inspired you to join in with this weeks colour challenge.  The design team will have plenty more inspiration too!!
