Embellish Embossing Challenge

The current challenge at Embellish Magazine is to emboss with the colors from the color inspiration shown on the right.  I have to admit all the colors together intimidated me a bit, but I am pleased with how the card turned out.  All the bright colors together are very cheery!

I love the new Hero Arts Earth Flowers that I used for the green background that is embossed using Ranger Distress Peeled Paint Ink.  I distressed the card edges and popped it up a little bit with dimensionals.

It's a rainy weekend here...good opportunity to spend extra time creating!
Ingredients:  Hero Arts Earth Flowers and PTI Damask Designs Stamps; PTI Twine, SU Regal Rose Ink, Paper and Ribbon; K&Co Flower Stickers; Kaiser Kraft Gems; Ranger Distress Ink Peeled Paint; Clear Embossing Powder

So very lovely, while browsing the gallery images, this one stood out for the design and pink panel background and ribbon. The flowers are simply lovely growing amongst the tall vines.
