Hmmmm....this card is really different for me. As much as I love these richly colored, beautiful earrings from the Villa Sorgenfrei inspiration website, I'm not sure how well I translated it to my card. I thought I'd upload it anyway and see what you think. What kind of occasion would you use this for?
This is also for the first Mixed Media challenge that started yesterday. Lydia's challenge is called Yin Yang to use one shiny medium and one matte medium. I used Distress Inks sponged on Crumb Cake card stock, and I used Glossy Accents for the center of the flower as well as a red glitter gel pen for the outer stitching and dotting on the flowers. I also used black embossing powder on the two flowers and separated them with dimensionals. I used Pumice Stone ink to stamp the leaves in the background.

Wow, Charlene... you really nailed your inspiration piece! Love the deep, rich reds and your sponging, especially on the textured paper. I think this would make a great thank you or thinking of you card.
