Color Throwdown!!

Well, here we are at the end of an other week, the last Friday of can it be??? :o)

This morning I was carousing the neighborhood, of Blogland, and stumbled on a challenge that looked like a fun one to try.  After hours of trying to "make" it I the only one??
I finally went a totally different direction, and making myself step out of my comfort zone......just a little. 

I have had this stitched diamond die set for quite a while, but haven't really used them.  I don't do much with diamond shapes and was wondering "why?" I even bought I the only one??
I made diamond shaped frames and then in-laid them into the card base.  A die cut hello for the center.  The butterfly is a remnant of the first direction I was headed, I die cut and embossed it, then rubbed some gold over it.

The comfort zone thing????  Well, I would normally center, I mean totally center, the diamond shapes!  I know, it wasn't a "big" step out of the zone......but there ya have it!......LOL!!

Here is the challenge:
