This card features one of my favorite stamp sets, Artistic Etchings, along with two of my favorite colors.  Well… OK, I must admit I have lots of favorite colors but this combination actually stands out as a favorite of mine.  The colors are Baja Breeze and Early Espresso.  This card is my Design Team submission for this weeks Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge.

Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge # 32

Artistic Etchings Anniversary Card

Artistic EtchingsThe base for this weeks card is Baja Breeze.  The layers are Early Espresso with Pocketful of Posies Designer Series Paper creating the background for the stamped image.  I enjoyed creating a collage of two stamped images on Naturals Ivory card stock layered with Early Espresso and embossed with the designer frames embossing folders.  The Sentiment is from the "A Word for You" stamp set.  The final touch includes adding the Seam Binding Ribbon bow in Crumb Cake along with the Pearls.  I really love the look of this card and could easily see making it into a more masculine card by removing the bow and doing either a more masculine ribbon, brad or buttons then the pearls would also be removed and replaced with brads.
