ATS&M Sketch #5

It's time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! and our amazing sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps!!!! They are generously offering you a pack of 7 digi's from their store!!!

This week we have a sketch for our challenge!
I combined the sketch with the challenges at Black Tie Fridays (which I have missed out on for the past couple weeks due to being busy and I have SOOOO missed!) and The Play Date Cafe.

I didn't have any ink or cardstock that came even remotely close to that beautiful emerald green, so I had to use Gumball Green.  Now I am hoping that Stampin' Up! comes out with a shade of green like that!  I still like the Gumball Green on my card though.

 I decided to use the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder since it's been sitting around for a while just gathering dust. :) It seemed to fit this sketch perfectly.  I really love the way bows look with the organza ribbon. So classy! 

Stamp Sets: Flowering Flourishes, Language of Friendship, Trust God
Cardstock: Basic Black, Gumball Green, Whisper White
Ink: Black StazOn
Tools: Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Wide Oval Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch
Accessories: Organza Ribbon, Pearls
