FTL #93 And Embellish!

I've been wanting to make brick wall card ever since I saw Beate's tutorial on her blog. Hers is such a beauty...mine...maybe not, but I'm still going to post it. I've really enjoyed playing along with Embellish's challenges lately, but this one threw me for a loop. How can I tell I'm not a fan of cameo coral? I went to see what I had for scraps when I was starting this card...and loh and behold had none for this colour!! Shocker! NOT! Anyways, I did manage to get a bit of it into this card, and while I love what everyone else is doing with this colour combo, I'm not blown away by my attempt:) Let me know what you think:) Along with the current embellish challenge, I also used Clean and Simple Cards' challenge #93. It started out as a clean and simple card....but with all the sponging and cutting, didn't end up as one:) I think what is actually bothering me the most about this card (apart from the poorly cut ribbon ends:) is that I stamped the medallion image in black when it should have been stamped in chocolate chip (my ink pad is in the mail:). Ahhh well:)

-whisper white, cameo coral, and chocolate chip cardstock
-basic black, soft suede, and crushed curry ink
-chocolate chip satin ribbon, basic grey button, and twine
-"Great Friend" and "Happy Moments" stamp sets from SU!

thanks for stopping by!
