Elizabeta *Day 2*

Here is our next gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS card by Elizabeta:
All of the textures, plus Elizabeta's beautiful color scheme all add up to one striking card! 
Now, put on your sunglasses.... LOL.... here is my take:

I began by stamping Penny Black 3865K Gossamer with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Copic X-Press It cardstock and coloring with Copic Markers.  I then cut out the flowers and leaves.  I inked Tiara white cardstock with Walnut Stain and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and stamped with the PB Gossamer stamp again.  I adhered my cut out flowers and leaves to the brown, inked piece of cardstock. I also added black enamel accents to the centers of the flowers. To create the background, I embossed yellow cardstock and then inked with Wild Honey and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.

And you will definitely want to head over to the Mementos blog today to check out a great way to save--it's an SOS sale!!

Thanks so much for popping by!
