Now, I'm happy! (CC206, Mojo74)

Well, yesterday I did this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, but I really didn't like my card. I did it again using today's Color Challenge (More Mustard, Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss or Old Olive). Now, I'm happy with my card!!! LOL! The base card here is Confetti White so there are speckles on the inside. The Rose Red panel was embossed with the "Birds n' Swirls" embossing folder. The designer paper, matted on Whisper White, is Rose Red Prints DSP (retired), and I tried to catch bits of the birds and swirls in the paper. The main image was stamped on Whisper White by inking the stamp with Rose Red and Old Olive Markers. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the outline and stamped with Black Stazon. Finally, I stamped the center of the flower with More Mustard. The panel is matted on Kiwi Kiss, then More Mustard, and then Whisper White. The medallion is stamped on Whisper White with Rose Red ink and matted on Kiwi Kiss. The ribbon is Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon which I really love! This card is much better than yesterday's card, don't you think? Thanks for visiting today!!!

This is so pretty! I love how you tilted the flower image and the ribbon at the bottom really makes the card pop!
