This card is for my cousin. We had not seen each other since I was 5 and we reconnected last year. His birthday is in a few days so this is for him.
I started with a base of Pool Party, then Soft Suede then Spice Cake dp and some Pool Party that I ran through the inked up ef of Wallpaper. I don't like Soft Suede but that's the color in the dp. I don't have the ink just the paper. So I inked up my stamp with PP and then randomly inked Espresso on it and cut it out. Then I inked the edges. I don't have ribbon in either color so I cut a strip of the SS and ran it through the Lattice ef and used it. I popped up my image on dimensionals. This is for the CCEE challenge and my friend Shirt issued the challenge this week. We were to use a favorite color combo and a half a circle on the card. So my half circle was used for the sentiment. I wanted to glam this up sooooooooo bad but I resisted since this is going to a man. I love brown and blue. Thanks for the great challenge Shirt. It was fun to do.

Silly, so glad to have you join us for the CCEE challenge. Blue and Brown is one of my favorite color combo's, too. Actually I have a few, but black & red is my very favorite. Your card is so pretty, I like the suede, it looks great with your dp. Nice job inking up the wall paper EF. I love how you used the half circle for your sentiment.
