cTD182: Happy Birthday with Elementary Elegance

This is the card I made for the Color Throwdown challenge #182. The colors were supposed to be Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip. When I was making the quilted background I inadvertently grabbed a piece of Soft Suede Designer Series Paper instead of Chocolate Chip. Whoops. I didn't realize it until the end so I went with Soft Suede.
