This card is for the color challenge of curry, red, and sand. I have found curry difficult to work with, and haven't used it much. Today I was imagining Indian women's clothing. I used my cb folder and brayered red ink on it. I embossed god ink, and added some gold bling instead of the buttons. I'm pleased with how it turned out. Thanks for the challenge Betty.

Wow! This is so beautiful. When I went to the gallery, this immediately caught my eye. Great with the cb folder, how you added some more color to it and the leaves and bling are great. The gold bling is awesome the way you placed it rather randomly.

WOW!!!! I cannot believe I am about to say that the crushed curry looks rich and fabulous with the tinted embossing folder detailing! But, it DOES! Great looking card, Kim! Love the gold embossing, too!
