Just Add Ink Challenge 31

Hi everyone,
I hope you are having a nice day.  I've just popped in to upload my card for the latest Just Add Ink Challenge, this week it's a colour challenge - Real Red, Chocolate Chip and Kraft (soon to be known as Crumb Cake).  Check out the challenge here.

I've started off with a base of Kraft and wheeled it with the Very Vintage wheel in Versamark. Next I layered pieces of Chocolate Chip and Real Red.  I was going for a vintage look so I tore the cardstock along the bottom and off the left corner, I wheeled these layers as well.  I then stamped a flower from the Fifth Avenue Floral set onto Very Vanilla cardstock with Real Red ink and cut it out, I also stamped the stew from the same set onto kraft with Chocolate Chip ink and trimmed around it also.  The greeting was stamped onto the Red with Chocolate Chip ink and I finished it off by wrapping some Very Vanilla Taffeta around and securing it with Linen Thread. 

Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.
