Life in Potato Colors

We had a power outage for about a day because of strong storms. Luckily we have no damage and I think most of the food in the refrigerator survived, thanks to my DH who ran out and bought ice and put it in big bowls inside freezer and refrigerator. 
Before we lost power I started playing in the SCS VSN appetizer night. Five different challenges, so far I've gotten to two of them (there wasn't a stamping by candlelight challenge or I'd have been all over that one!)
 For the first challenge, posted by Darth Tater (I'll wait a minute for you all to catch up to the joke), we had to create a card using colors of a baked potato with toppings, including brown, green for chives, white for the potato interior, yellow for buttah! And the extra color, that had to be added in a different fashion, through ribbon or glitter, was red (like paprika!) 
I went lightly on the brown, only using it in the sentiment (I never eat the potato skin anyway), and the Life set works great in avocado and overlaid with a white embossed layer. A touch of red stickles to my green stems and voila! My potato card was done. Thanks for looking.
