Gorgeous Color....

This challenge....from over at Core d'nations Cardstock is about
the color inspiration in the photo above. Is this STRIKING or
what?!! Just love the rich colors!! I think I captured it in my
"Birthday Elegance" card here:

I used my newly acquired Tim Holtz Kraft Core cardstock from Core d'nations.
I embossed and then sanded it. I used 2 embossing folders from Sizzix, the
background and the small "frame" that the sentiment is mounted to (I fussy
cut around that one).

Other detes....ribbon & trim from my stash....I made the stick pins w/beads
I got at Mikes, the patterned paper is MME Stella & Rose Hattie, the
stamped sentiment is Verve (Walnut Stain Distress Ink), MS butterfly punch,
and used bling from BoBunny.
