Colour Combo #185

This week is Colour Combo #185 over at Color Combos Galore

I actually found this weeks challenge to be a little difficult........ The colours Red, White, Chartruese and Brown kind of threw me a bit.  I wasn't actually sure what to do, or if to even participate in this challenge.  Anyway I decided to bite the bullet and just go for it.
This is what I have created!

I printed this photo out a while ago and it was actually destined for a large collage frame that I also bought a while ago, I just haven't put photos in it yet.  I decided that it would actually work for this challenge with the green of the trees in the background and the red of Mackenzies top.......... so the collage frame will sit dormant for a while longer :-)

I used a Kaszazz sticky bling word "Cherish" for the title, but decided that it needed a little more - so added some mini alphabet stickers (also Kaszazz) and extended the title.  I used a script stamp roughly inked with Barn Door distress ink in the background to add a little more dimension and red to the LO. 
I am not a huge fan of brown - just seems so boring to me.  So I decided that I would just add a bit of brown my spraying some Log Cabin Smooch Spritz on the white card background.

I have used a journal stamp to get the journalling block.  I have also used some sort of weaved straw ribbon that I have had for a long time now in the background - it is actually a maroon colour.  I have used a mix of Prima and other flowers for the embellishments on this page.  I have also added a few sticky gems at the bottom of the journalling block just for some added embellishment.

I have also used a doily on this LO........... I bought these off ebay for about $6 for 10 of them. 
I really did struggle with this Colour Combination and the LO in general.  I do think that it has come together fairly well, however there was more then one occasion that I seriously considered binning the whole thing and not worrying about it.

Thanks for looking
