I made this card for a challenge on a group I belong to. The challenge was to use Chipboard on the card. The chipboard is the square piece with the circles. I covered it using SU! Designer Series Paper. I then stamped the images in Pixie Pink and Certainly Celery on Whisper White cardstock. Placed it behind the chipboard. I sanded the edges of the chipboard. I threaded Olive ribbon around the card (made a slit on the fold to thread ribbon through). Used a piece of Hodgepodge Hardware. To tie in the pink some more I added a small piece of Pink ribbon (retired from SU!). The greeting was stamped in Old Olive. I also then sponged the base card on all sides with Old Olive ink.
I really like how this card turned out. I LOVE green, so really anything with green is great! :) I like the pink/green combo here too (which was obviously inspired by the DS Paper).
I hope the person that gets this likes it as well. I'm late sending it to her, but hope it was worth the wait.
