Burgundy Beauty

I created this card this evening for the Inspiration Challenge on SCS today, that can be seen here... http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=270758. And this is the piece that inspired my card... http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=58566&d=1184987600

I got my new background stamp at Toyrifix today and it is from Impression Obsession. I stamped it with maroon Colorbox chalk ink on Stampin' Up Confetti White cardstock. I sponged SU! Pretty in Pink ink around the edges, and because my stamp didn't ink well in the bottom right corner, I added some brads to camoflauge! This piece is then adhered to a piece of SU! Pretty in Pink cardstock. The main image is from Stampin' Up Garden Silhouettes hostess set, is colored using Tombow markers, and stamped on a piece of Confetti White. I also sponged Pretty in Pink around the edges of this piece and adhered it to a piece of Bravo Burgundy Stampin' Up cardstock. I stamped "lovely" on Pretty in Pink using the maroon ink, punched it out with my SU! Word Window punch, folded it and mounted to the flowered piece with a brad. I tied a piece of wide burgundy organdy ribbon around my card front and mounted it to the card base which is SU! Bravo Burgundy. I absolutely love how this turned out, and think I may send it to my Mom because it just looks like her! She's been gone for a week on a vacation and I've missed getting to talk to her!
