A Challenge card WOOHOO !

Yes I've finally done it, I've made a challenge card WOOHOO ! It's for Colour Create where they would like us to use the colours black, cream and burnt orange, with the optional extra of using checks. My burnt orange does look a bit red/pinky, but it is the right colour I promise.
The image is Stampendous Agaphantus, the card is SU and Papermill, the paper is from my stash and is a basket weave pattern so not sure if that counts as a check. I've used rafia instead of ribbon and the flowers are from my stash. The greeting is by Wild rose studio.

Thanks for looking and I hope you'l pop by again soon. Please feel free to leave a comment.
