Basic Baroque~~

For today's card, I was inspired by the Clean and Simple blog. I like going there because their card sketches are fun, easy, and I can almost always see a card in my head right after I see the sketch. They come together quickly when the sketch is there for me!

I was in my favorite craft store and ribbon was on sale! Now, %50 off ribbon pretty much begs me to buy it, so naturally I obliged! When I saw the ribbon on today's card, I saw the color combo in head right away too. I honestly expected the color to go best with Bravo Burgundy, but when I got to playing with it, the Bravo was to "dirty" and blended with the Chocolate chip, rather than popping out. So I got to looking thru my ink pads, and lo and behold, I found a nice match in Rich Razzleberry! I started with the Baroque Motif's SS. The card base is Crumb Cake, the neutral is Very Vanilla, the inks are Chocolate Chip and Razzleberry, and the little oval mat is Chocolate Chip. I added tiny clear rhinestones to the flower centers and tied the ribbon. Ta-Da!
