More Pink Olives

I actually had time to squeak out another card for the Color Challenge today. The patterned paper is from the Amy Butler Sola Collection, and the Regal Rose background panel is embossed using one of the new Sizzix Texturz Texture Plates I found at Joann's! (and I even got to use a coupon!) I don't know how long Joann's has had them since I haven't been there in a while, but they are for use with the BIGkick and Big Shot machines. (Oh, and they sell the Sizzix BIGkick now too) I used the texture plate in my Cuttlebug. This was the Flowers #3 plate. I really love how the texture plates give a subtle embossed look. Have I told you how much I LOVE the Garden Whimsy set? When I got it, I thought I'd use the tulip stamp the least, and it seems that I've used it the most! I just LOVE the look of it! Well, it's time to turn in for the night. Thanks for visiting again! See you tomorrow! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Garden Whimsy; Ink- VersaMagic in Pixie Pink, Pink Petunia, Aloe Vera, Tea Leaves and Hint of Pesto; Paper- DCWV Olive, Whisper White, Regal Rose, Amy Butler Sola Collection; Accessories- Giga Scallop circle punch, Mega circle punch, Sizzix Texturz Flower #3 plate, Cuttlebug, White gel pen, paper piercer, Lollipop ribbon, slit punch.
