Maura has chosen a pretty combination for the SCS Color Challenge - Elegant Eggplant, Bermuda Bay, Old Olive - with an optional dessert to use any kind of embossing. I guess you could call the stitching on the sentiment banner a form of dry embossing. I'm actually CASEing one of my own cards from 9/2014 that you can see HERE.
Here is what I used ...
STAMPS: Kinda Eclectic, Loving Thoughts - SU
PAPER: Bermuda Bay, White
INK: Bermuda Bay, Lucky Limeade, Elegant Eggplant
ACCESSORIES: Buttons (SU), Butterfly punch (SU), Stitched Fishtail Flags Die-Namics (MFT), Corner Chomper.
