Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 34

When I saw this week's colors for Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge, my mouth started watering.  I absolutely love the colors she razzleberry, dusty durango, whisper white, sahara sand, and basic gray...and they go together so well.  As I said earlier, this month is a busy card month for me, so I made this card as an anniversary card for my cousin and his wife.  The base of the card is rich razzleberry textured card stock.  I then took a piece of basic gray card stock and used the eyelet border punch along the bottom.  I used the new stamp set Awash With Flowers (which features two-step stamping) and stamped 3 of the different flower images on whisper white card stock.  The outline image was stamped in rich razzleberry (except for the flower in the upper left corner...I accidentally stamped it in dusty durango...and got really upset, but then decided I liked it) and the stemps were stamped in basic gray.  The inside images were stamped in dusty durango.  I then used my Versamarker to color in the inside images and used iridescent ice embossing powder to make it sort of blingy.  I also sponged the edges in rich razzleberry.  I used the new Level 3 Hostess set Occassional Quotes for the saying...I used my markers to make the words different colors...and then punched it out using the new 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Extra-Large and sponged the edges in rich razzleberry.  The stamped images were then layered onto a piece of sahara sand card stock...I distressed the edges to give it a little worn look.  Finally I added rich razzleberry polka-dot ribbon (which is retiring:( but wait until you see the new ribbon available in this great color), tied a whisper white button on to the bow using linen thread, and embossed the Happy Anniversary greeting in white embossing powder.  I really love how it turned it...I think it might be one of my favorite cards that I've made recently.  Let me know what you think!!!
