Simply Soft Thanks - Challenge 173 & Hand Stamped Sentiment #118 & Try Stampin on Tuesday #66

It's a holiday weekend here in Ontario and the weather forecast is fantastic.  I will be outdoors all day today having a Perennial plant sale.  I hold this every year and do very well.
Today I'm combining 3 challenges in one card.
1.  Challenge 173 LNS - Paper, glorious paper - use up current designer paper that is about to retire
2.  Hand Stamped Sentiments - Emboss resist technique here
3.  Try Stampin' on Tuesday - the sketch here

The focal image was made using the emboss resist technique using Pewter embossing powder and the stamp set "Simply Soft" which is also going to retire.  Marina Mist ink was used to highlight the image.
The card is mainly in tones on Marina Mist with a bit of Soft Suede, but I felt it needed a touch of another color, so I added a Pink Pirouette ribbon, thus altering the sketch a bit.
Instead of using clear embossing powder, I used pewter.

Stamps: Simply Soft, Petite Pairs
Inks: Marina Mist, Versa Mark, Basic Black
Papers: Marina Mist, Very Vanilla, Beau Chateau designer paper, Whisper White
Accessories: Pewter embossing powder, 3/8" Pink Pirouette taffeta ribbon, Curly Label Punch, dimensionals.
