RRR Pink & Brown Challenge

Hi everyone.  We have a fun new challenge today over at Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings.  The RRR Challenge #43 theme is Pink & Brown with Ribbon.  What a terrific color combo.

I decided to go ‘quick and easy’ for this one.  I used a Spellbinder Classic Ovals die.  I cut it out, embossed it and left the die on.  I then stamped my image with Adirondak Espresso ink while the die was still on so the border would remain white.  I then added several other oval layers.  (I love layers!!)  For the background I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and pink textured cardstock from DCWV with a white core.  I used a sanding block on the raised part to let some white show through to highlight the pretty embossing.  I printed my sentiment on my computer and I finished it off with a 1-1/2″ Brown Satin Double Ruffle Ribbon base and a crinkled Pink Seam Binding double bow.

I’m also entering my card in Card Patterns Sketch #152 challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you’ll join in our challenge!
