CTD#216 - Chair-ished Friendship

Happy Halloween!!!  This month has come and gone so fast I can hardly believe it, before you know it it'll be Christmas (55 days, but who's counting right?).  Today is Wednesday and you know what that means, it's time for the Color Throwdown Challenge!  Our hostess for this week's challenge is the talented Kerri who has chosen a bold color combo for us to create with along with a fantastic inspiration photo.
After looking at the inspiration photo with its cool zebra rug, navy paint and trim and high backed chairs I decided to go with the Papertrey Ink stamp set On My Couch.  I started out with a crumb cake card base, added a vertical strip of base black and then two banners of designer paper.  I die-cut a PTI tag and ran it through my Big Shot with the Simple Stripes Impressions plate, then stamped my sentiment and added my paper pieced chairs which I colored with Copic markers to give some depth.  For finishing touches I added some orange ribbon, button and twine along with three black rhinestones in the lower right corner.
