Poison Ivory dream

Today I would like to share a card with you that I made this week for the sketch and color challenges this week on SCS. The colors were to use burgundy, artichoke, coral and vanilla.

I stamped my silhouette image with burgundy ink onto Paper Temptress poison ivory iridescent cardstock. I love the subtle shimmer that it has and the silhouettes are from one of my favorite Sweet N Sassy sets called Dream Silhouettes. I then sponged artichoke and coral ink around the image which still in my rectangle die. I accented the flowers with stickles glitter glue. The artichoke patterned paper was matted onto the poison ivory and then onto the burgundy. All the layers were sewn before attaching to the ivory card base.

stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Dream Silhouettes
CS- Paper Temptress poison ivory, basis burgundy, artichoke dp
accessories- pearls, grosgrain ribbon, stickles, rectangle nesties, sewing machine

I do want to go ahead and mention a wonderful giveaway that is going on at Paper Temptress:
