Color Throwdown

Hello everybody.  When I saw the colors for the throwdown I thought oh my goodness, how am I going to do those colors.  They are nothing that I usually use.  I looked through my huge stash of Basic Grey papers and found the Ambrosia collection.  Perfect.  As soon as I saw the paper I wanted to use I thought it looked like old wallpaper.  Then insantly I thought about the Cricut cartridge Home Decor with the chandelier.  I cut the chandelier out and then glittered it with Martha Stewart glitter , used a piece of red satin ribbon, adhered it alll and there we have it.  Simple and pretty. 
Thank you all for stopping by
