For Marcia

Earlier this month, I participated in a Sale-A-Bration swap. The other participants should have their card fronts by now, so I'd like to show you my contribution and dedicate it to Marcia who is celebrating a birthday today. Happy Birthday and many happy returns.

I absolutely LOVE the colour scheme of this card. I specifically went out of my way to use colours I wouldn't normally pick myself, and discovered this combination as I was blog surfing. I think it's a KWerner combo from quite some time ago, but can't be sure. As for techniques, this card uses quite a few of the basics being, SAMJ use, heat embossing and paper punching. I hope you like today's card.

Supplies:
* Botanical Blooms Stamp Set.
* Elegant Eggplant, Taken with Teal & Whisper White Cardstock.
* Elegant Eggplant & Taken with Teal Markers. VersaMark Stamp Pad.
* 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, White Embossing Powder, Edge Scallop Punch, SAMJ & Embossing Buddy.

Hi Nerine another great card, I really liked yours also from the layout challenge from this week. Back to work so no time to stamp but a little time to blog surf tonight to relax after such a busy day.
