PPA#50 Medallion Wedding

This one is for PPA#50 a color challenge, here.
I wasn't too sure about this color combo but I actually like how this card turned out. But that's the great thing about challenges, right? You're challenged to get outta your comfort zone!
So I started with a card stock base of Basic Gray and ran that thru the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper textured impressions embossing folder. I used the Top Note die to cut out two top notes in So Saffron and Whisper White. I trimmed down the white one and stamped the Medallion stamp on that with Chocolate Chip. I again stamped the Medallion in So Saffron and cut out the center. I added a yellow Circle Fire Rhinestone brad to the center. The greeting is from Occasional Quotes and that was stamped on So Saffron with Chocolate Chip and punched out with the XL Scallop Oval punch. A piece of Chocolate Chip was punched with the XL 2 by 1 3/8 oval punch and popped up with Stampin dimensionals. Finally, a piece of 5/8 inch Basic Gray taffeta finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Medallion, Occasional Quotes
Papers: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Basic Gray, So Saffron
Inks: Chocolate Chip and So Saffron
Accessories:  Vintage Wallpaper textured impressions embossing folder, Circle Fire Rhinestone brad, 5/8 inch Basic Gray taffeta ribbon, Stampin' dimensionals, XL Scallop oval punch, XL 2 by 1 3/8 oval punch
