Yummy New Ribbon

So, as many of you may know, I frequently spend a lot of my computer time on http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/. I am addicted to the daily challenges, and am late getting many of them completed this week. The Limited Supply Challenge is one I really like to do (and I even got to host it once many eons ago!) So this card was created for that challenge, which was posted yesterday. The challenge was to dust off an old stamp set or stamps that you haven't used in awhile. (All supplies are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.) This is a Hero Arts set that I've had forever called Long-Stemmed Flowers. I inked up the "shadow" stamp with Soft Sky, then inked the flower stamp with my Cameo Coral and Chocolate Chip markers, and stamped on Very Vanille cardstock. I matted this piece on a strip of Cameo Coral cardstock. I stamped the Dotted background stamp with Versamark on the Soft Sky piece, then adhered it to my Chocolate Chip card base. I tied a strip of this yummy new velvet, saddle-stitched ribbon that I got at Archiver's last night around a polka-dotted piece of Au Chocolate paper and adhered it to the card using dimensionals. I adhered the main image to the card with a double-layer of dimensionals so that it would really be raised over the ribbon. I stamped "a flower for you" from the new level 3 hostess set "Vases in Vogue" on Soft Sky cardstock using Chocolate Chip ink and punched it out using my small oval punch. I punched a piece of Cameo Coral using the large oval punch, glued them together and adhered to the card using dimensionals. Voila'! I am so in love with how this turned out, and might set this one aside also to consider for submission to a magazine! Thanks for looking!

Love those colors together, this makes such a fabulous card. Of course you should submit it for publication. Then, when you are rich and famous, we can say we knew you when!
