Colour Q Weekly Challenge

This was a tough one for me.  I had the concept in my head but I played around with different variations before I decided on the final one.  Equally I thought I had found a close replica of a colour but the ink then came out darker than I had hoped but I had committed myself.  Lots of processing, playing around and much tougher than I expected, so brilliant! It's good to be challenged.

Looks kind of simple now it's finished doesn't it lol.

So, the background stamp is Sweater Stitch from My Favorite Things and stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe ink from Stampin' Up!  It was this that looked much paler and I thought it would be a good substitute for Apricot Appeal but it's much more orange, he ho.  The Night of Navy is my vest last scrap but the card needed it to help balance the colours out.  

The substitute for More Mustard is very close.  I think this is a Bazzill card stock, which I have had in my stash for years.  The tags were made using Die-namics Pierced Tags Stax.  The smaller stack was stamped in Night of Navy using Typewriter Text stamp from MFT.  The butterfly is a die from SU called Bold Butterfly and this is in the tiniest smidging of Calypso Coral I had left.  I then added silver ribbon, a Vintage Faceted Designer Button, adhered with a Glue Dot, and rhinestones to embellish, all from SU.  The words are stickers from Tim Holtz and the peg is from my stash.

Here is the inside.
