Winter Memories - Create with Connie & Mary #223

For the next 3 days I will be at a craft show "The Hands of Man", so this may be my last post for a few days.  I will be taking pictures of the show and will be putting these on my blog later in the week.
This card is for the sketch challenge with CCMC 223 here


2012 Create Thursday-003 

I must admit it felt awkward working with the paper at an angle, but I quite like the result.

Technique:   
The Gumball Green base is layered with Very Vanilla card stock embossed with the Fancy Fan folder.  The designer paper was placed at an angle, and cherry cobbler seam blinding was attached to the Very Vanilla layer above the designer paper.
I really had to resist tempation to straighten the sentiment, but the sketch shows it at an angle, so at an angle it stayed.
Image: 
The image was colored with markers and an Aqua painter.  The ribbon was stamped a second time, colored with a marker and then embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  It was then attached over top of the original ribbon with dimensionals.  See close up on second picture above.

Stamps: Winter Memories, Petite Pairs
Inks: Black Stazon, SU markers, Versa Mark, Cherry Cobbler
Papers: Gumball Green, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Be of Good Cheer DSP
Accessories: Fancy Fan folder, Cherry Cobbler seam blinding, Iridescent Ice embossing powder, Cherry cobbler dazzling details, Dazzling details, dimensionals, 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch, dimensionals, glue dot
