NZSU Week 8 Challenge and TSOT # 108

I decided to use the sketch for Try Stampin' On Tuesday #108 as my starting point for the NZSU Week 8 Challenge.  

Here is the sketch.

The NZSU challenge is to use a colour combination from the "Colour Coach" using the Creative Combination selection.  I have used Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade.

Here is the card I made:

I didn't have any matching ribbon in any of the three colours and I thought it would look best in the boldest colour, Elegant Eggplant so I thought I would dry emboss some card to give an interesting effect.  However, I didn't have any Elegant Eggplant card to use, so I coloured Whisper White with my marker, let it dry and then dry embossed it.  As it was white card I had to colour the edges of the card. I think it turned out quite well.

I would have liked to have punched the sentiment out with an oval shape, but I don't have any oval shaped punches (yet!), so I trimmed the two edges with my circle punch.
