Color Challenge - House of Cards

Above is the card I created for the newest challenge at 
It's an inspiration photo challenge this month.
I used colors similar to the photo as well as script.

Stamps, inks, card stock, paper punch and seam binding ribbon 
were all from Stampin' Up!, most no longer available. 
"hello" die cuts (cream die cut stacked and off set over kraft die cut) 
are an old die from Cuttlebug. I don't recall the set name.
Signo white gel pen, paper piercer and a pair 
of scissors to distress the edges of the top portion.
Oh, and a piece of sponge to ink the edges of the hexagons!
I thought about running the bottom section through an embossing folder
to give it more of a quilt look, but was afraid to try it and have 
all the little stamping/inking details lost. It took quite a while
to make this piece, I didn't want to make another ;) 

Thanks for looking !
