Brocade For You (Curtain call 55) BLOG CANDY reminder

Hello, my dears! I'm so sorry, I'm not neglecting you- I actually have been working alot, just not posting, so I will try to make up for that today! Here is my card for the color challenge over at Stacey's Stamping Stage.

Here you can see the colors and the inspiration photo. I never ever have put bright red and orange together, so I KNEW I had to give it a shot! Here's my card: I bought this cool baroque flocked paper this week at Xpedx. No brand or anything on it, but WOW- isn't it pretty? I really liked it, and since it's red and white, perfect for this challenge! This is a legal sized card. I mounted the flocked paper onto Chocolate Chip cardstock and after I added my Tangerine top note die piece, I mounted the whole thing on a black card base. I stamped "for you" from SU! "All Holidays stamp set on the Top Note piece. For my embellishment, I layered 3 Tangerine Tango scalloped circles & put a brad through the center, I then did my water/ scrunching/ Smooch Spritz technique on the "flower." The red flower is cut from red craft felt on my Cuttlebug with a Cuttlebig die. I then stitched the whole embellishment together using some Chocolate baker's twine (Jillibean Soup) and a black button from my random jar. I hope you like my card!

Well, that's it for me today, scroll down to the post below or go to this link for a chance to win some blog candy! Any comment on that post will enter you, but what I really want to know is: what was the best prize you ever won and why? I will announce the winner on Thursday!
