Color My Heart #72--Barn Red

We have a single colour challenge for you at Color My Heart this week:
Barn Red is an interesting colour--more of a warm brown than a red. It made me think of warm quilts, and inspired by this photo:
And using this die:
I came up with this card:
While I used a chevron pattern die, you could easily use one of the many overlays from the CTMH ArtBooking Cartridge to recreate this card.
I wanted to include some patterned paper on that section on the right side, like on the quilt. I cut up some of the coordinating papers from the Huntingdon pack (bamboo and slate), but couldn't decide which looked best. While re-arranging them, some fell out, leaving the white recessed space. The "missing pieces" led to the sentiment!
The big bow may be over kill, but it needed a little something-something.

How will you interpret this one-clour challenge?
Head over to the Color My Heart blog for more inspiration, and rules to link up.
See that shiny twine on the sentiment tag? There is a metallic Divine Twine giveaway going on, over at Whisker Graphics. Use this LINK to check it out.
