Alarming Pins

Just a card cuz it is WAY past my bedtime! Too much Pinning going on on Pinterest instead of sleeping! I will be really sorry in the morning when the alarm goes off to get up for church!

Resist It
~Base card - tangerine cardstock
~Background stamp
~Technique: triple layer using bubblegum, tangerine, pear color inks with green embossing powder ~Layer of bubblegum grosgrain ribbon - and drywall mesh tape
~Pear colored flower button
~Dollop of SU Crystal Effects on a few of the flower centers
~Tangerine ribbon
~Collage folder embossing on top two layers

Fun combination of techniques - I learned from it - will try it again - with different stamp....
I would love to say this is prettier in real life...I'll have to settle is more INTERESTING in real life.
