Color Challenge

Betty has some unusual colors this week for the SCS Color Challenge: Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red, & Elegant Eggplant...forcing me to put my thinking cap on! Yes...I'm a stalker...I kept checking the new card additions on SCS to see what colors were on board. I made the card without knowing what the dessert option was, and I can't believe I didn't use a single die on this one! Oh, well...I need to skip dessert anyway - lol! I used my nearly forgotten sanded BG stamp...love the look of it, especially with distressed and sponged edges. I'll be anxious to see what everyone comes up with using these colors. This card is also for the Paper Sundaes Challenge to use distressing.
STAMPS: Blossoms Abound (SU), Tiny Tags (SU), Sanded BG (SU)
PAPER: Soft Suede, Elegant Eggplant, Riding Hood Red textured CS, White
INK: Soft Suede, Elegant Eggplant, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive
ACCESSORIES: Tiny tag punch (SU), Distressing tool, Sponge, Kaiser gold pearls, Vintage brad, Grosgrain ribbon (SU)
