My Pink Stamper Design Team Challenge Project

Ok, let me just say right off that I by no means feel qualified by any stretch of the imagination to be chosen for Robyn's awesome design team, but it was a rainy day here in California and I was bored, so this card was born!  My focal image was cut at 2 3/4" from the Elegant Cake cartridge.  It is called Accent 8 and is on page 37 of the handbook.  I first cut the base in a soft sage green, then cut the layer in a pale pink.  I then inked the green layer with Forest Moss Distress Ink and inked the pink layer with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.  I was really happy with the result, although it is difficult to photograph.  Then I cut the brown layer from Chocolate Stardream cardstock.  I LOVE this cardstock!  It is so shimmery and beautiful and is awesome to work with.  The brown layer is 7" X 3 1/2 ".  The card base is also Stardream cardstock in Opal, which is a beautiful shimmery off-white. The card base is large-- 12" X 8 1/2", folded in half, making the card front 6" X 8 1/2". The brown mulberry flower is from iamroses.com.  I love their flowers.  This one is the 2" gardenia in brown.  Now for the ribbon.  It actually isn't ribbon at all.  It is rayon seam binding that was white.  I put it in a zip bag and added alcohol ink in Mountain Rose and Hazelnut, dried it with my heat gun as I scrumched it so it would look wrinkly, then misted it with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist and tied it on my card!  So, that's it.  Hope you like it!
Hugs!
