This is what I made for my friend's birthday. She loves to stamp so I splurged with lots of hardware on this card. I love making cards for a special purpose like this. It's fun to make the extra effort like dying ribbon and finding just the right accessories. She really liked it!
I stamped Paisley on the cranberry, tone-on-tone, and stamped Linen on the oval in Marigold Morning for a faint effect. I sponged various golds and yellows around the edges for depth. I spritzed the ink on the flower stamp for a bit of a watercolor effect. I dyed a length of white grosgrain using my Always Artichoke reinker (turned out a bit greyer than I'd like - I'll use more inker next time). This card was fun to make!

She DOES love it!!! Looks so nice sitting on my piano, it almost makes me happy to be a year older. And one of these days, I am going to take all of my Karen-cards apart, to see how she does it, and then I'll give back the hardware....
