Gratitude Blossom

I got some fun 'Chocolate' in the mail from a couple of days ago and I got some time to play today!  I love being a Chocolatier and being on the design team for them.  They sell so many different brands and varieties of products!  For this card I used makingmemories english garden pack and fancy pants All Fall Gingham Ribbon, all from!

The Play Date Cafe is having a great challenge going on right now with prizes!  The challenge is to use Red, Green, and Black!

Here's what I came up with:

 Notice I used the Houndstooth embossing folder on the Rose Red layer! If you haven't already be sure and check out my GIVEAWAY. Included in the giveaway bundle is the HOUNDSTOOTH embossing folder!

 Rose was cut from Picturesque at 3 1/4"
Circle layers were  cut from Winter Woodland
I cut two layers of the rose and the rose shadow in Bravo Burgundy.
I crimpled them up in a ball them to give a little texture, traced and highlighted with Bravo Burgundy marker and added Stickles.

Card Base: Black 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:  makingmemories Green from english garden pack 4 1/8" X 5 3/8"
Other Cardstock / Paper:  SU Ruby Red, more from mm english garden pack
Ink: SU Rose Red
Stamps:  SU Itty Bitty Bits (flower on the sentiment), Verve Beautiful You
Accessories:  Christmas Red Stickles, Bravo Burgundy marker, Cricut & Winterer Woodland and Picturesque Cartridges, Cuttlebug & Houndstooth embossing folder, fancy pants All Fall Gingham Ribbon, White gel pen
