Embellish with dimension:)

I made this card using the current embellish challenge. This was a tough one for me, look at those colours! Together?! What??!! I was at a loss when I grabbed the cardstock that I had on hand that was close to those colours and just couldn't imagine them together, until I remembered the new patterned paper stack that I got from Me and My Big Ideas. It had the perfect green! Then I just had to find some pp with the brown and terracotta colours and I was golden:) Mary Fish had done a card awhile ago that had scalloped borders down the entire front of the card and I earmarked it for stealing:) So here's my interpretation using Mary's scallop edge idea and a new ruffled ribbon technique I learned from Ashley Newell's blog.

-bermuda bay and whisper white cardstock
-chocolate chip satin ribbon
-scallop edge punch
-bermuda bay ink
-white button and twine
-"Great Friend" stamp set from SU!

thanks for stopping by!
