This week we had this color challenge to work with.
Edited to Add: I just noticed that my card looks very similar to one of the other design team members (Lisa Freeman). I didn't see her card before I made mine. Great minds think alike! Too funny.
I love it when I can make an elegant looking card in very little time. I took a piece of Vellum Cardstock and embossed it using the Manhattan Flower Textured Impression Die. I cut around the top edge of the flowers and mounted it on some Basic Gray cardstock. I enjoy using Vellum on my cards, but it's difficult to find a way to attach it to the card without the adhesive showing through the vellum. I used some translucent Xyron glue tape on the back of the vellum and you can't see it at all. I bought this tape at Big Lots a couple of years ago.
I stamped the "Best Wishes" sentiment in Versamark ink and then embossed it with Black Embossing Powder. I punched it out with the Large Oval Punch and mounted it on a Basic Black Scallop Oval. I finished the card with some new 5/8" Whisper White Satin ribbon from the Occasions Mini Catalog.
For the inside of my card I stamped the largest flower from the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set in Versamark ink and then embossed it with Black Embossing Powder.
