two challenges in one card


I stumbled across this blog for the first time today. 


And, I have wanted to play in this challenge for awhile now:





So, here is the card I made for both challenges:




I used Art to Borrow paper from Stampington for the background and the vertical strip.  An old Acey Deucy Italian script stamp for the gray panel (using Ranger's new pumice stone distress ink).  Impression Obsession flourish, Magenta flower and Hero Arts sentiment.  Spellbinders dies.  IRL, the color of the flower matches the paper, but it scanned differently:( 

Thanks for looking!

Such a pretty card, love how it's made up from different tones of the pink and how you've used the contrast of the white to make the flower and sentiment pop out. What creative talent!!! Px
