I often forget about the SU Creative Crew challenges. I found them today and encorporated two into this card that I created.
Colors - use only white, gray and ONE new In Color. I chose Midnight Muse. I colored the flower with only muse and gray, then stamped off once, then colored again with muse on some parts to get a darker tone.
Old & New - "old" items - corner rounder, scallop dotted ribbon border punch, dazzling details, "new" items - Blooming with Kindness stamp set, argyle embossing folder, Midnight Muse, ribbon
I cut with my paper cutter up to the flower, then cut around the flower with scissors - so it is all one image.

Beautiful card. Those colors work so well together! Love the stampset and you've used exactly like I would use it (IF I had this set): without the stem. Love the out of the box look and so many other details: dazzling details, scallop ribbon punch, new ribbon, new embossing folder. Great job on the challenge.
Thanks for sharing a lovely card.

This is so pretty, Trish. OUt of the box is one of my favorite techniques. Love the colors, and the embossing, rounded corners - so many details to take in. Question: you mention this is from SU Creative Crew challenge - where do you find that? TFS.
