10 Minutes or Less Challenge (My First DT Creation!)

This is my first Design Team member creation for the 10 Minutes or Less Challenge. I am so excited to be on this team! Here are the colours we are using for the challenge this week! Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, White and Rich Razzleberry. I love the rich, elegant colours!!
Here is what I used to create my card:
Stamps: Oval All (113790), Fifth Avenue Floral (113734)
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry
Designer Paper: To the Nines
Embellishments: Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Whisper White Craft Ink
Tools: Scallop Edge Border Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Heat Embossing Tool, Embossing Buddy

I chose the Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set because it is on SALE for the month of April!!! Oh boy!!! It is 20% off the regular price, which is a fabulous deal! I stamped the Rose in Whisper White Craft Ink and embossed the image using my Heat Embossing Tool and White Embossing Powder. I NEVER, well, HARDLY EVER, emboss and I don't know why! I should do it more! I love the rose image in white...the image works well when it is embossed. I also finished off the inside of the card.
All you need to do is visit Carole'Anne's Blog and link up your card for the chance to win the Wings of Friendship stamp set!!  I can't wait to see what you create using these colours! I hope you get the chance to play along this week!

Thank you for stopping by!
