embellish color challenge

I played along with one of the Embellish challenges before, and when I saw this week's challenge, I new I wanted to try to make something.


These colors are so pretty and I pretty much always use ribbon :) Here is what I came up with:

I decided to make a Valentine card. Since I always make at least different cards to choose from to give to my Tomio, I thouht I would start now :) I wasn't sure if it was too girly, but I figured it was ok for a Valentine :) I did some machine stitching on the light turquoise panel. I stamped a damask pattern on the chocolate base. I wondered about scattering some pearls on it, but I decided that the ones on the butterfly might be enough. The challenge calls for ribbon, so I did my very favorite thing to do with it-tied a big silky bow :)


And since Miss Emma looked so cute sitting and waiting while I took pictures of my card, I thought she should get her  picture taken too :)
Thanks for stopping by!
