I love this challenge. I think I actually managed to use every single one of my favourite things!
I decided on earth tones (favourite colours) and used Kraft cs (one of my faves). I used SU's frame ef (I love it) and for the panel inside I used my favourite technique:
I stamped the panel with SU's Old Lace background stamp using Versamark, then I gold embossed it. Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug using a Sissix ef. Then I sponged over the whole thing with Walnut distress ink. The gold embossing resisted the ink and the ink didn't go into the depressed part of the embossing, so I wound up with a kraft, walnut and gold background.
This Cheery Lynn die is definitely my fave....I think it's gorgeous, plus I think it might be the most versatile embellishment I've ever used. I topped that with my beloved green ribbon and flowers made with my fabulous new Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms.

Jo, no joke, your cards make me swoon! Love, love, love the colors and technique(thanks for sharing) on this one. That dull aqua tone is one of my personal favorite colors and with the kraft and gold it goes to another higher level. Your composition is impeccable as ever. GORGEOUS!!
