Color Blocking Challenge

I have swaps to finish up, but I squeezed in a card challenge. Sharon Johnson posts a challenge every Friday, and today's was color blocking. I'm not sure if I achieved it, but I like the card anyway! I saw this color combo in a stack of towels as I was shopping with my mom today, though the green towel was a bit more yellow. Alas, I have no cardstock that color, so I made do with celery.
I actually used a white base to adhere my color strips to, it is just easier for me. I wheeled the dots on the celery piece, left the coral piece alone, and pierced the bottom edge of the ruby piece. I punched a hole in the ghost heart and tied the ribbon around the color strip and throught the heart. I stamped the sentiment and then attached the whole colored strip to the chocolate card base using dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!

Supplies:
stamps - Absolutely Fabulous, Dotted Lines jumbo wheel
paper - chocolate, celery, coral, ruby
ink - chocolate
acc - mat pack & piercer, dotted ribbon, Heidi Swapp clear heart
