The technique wasn't hard at all! It has a great effect on the card and it makes the card look very elegant!
I used Rose red for the card base and a 1 1/2" strip put through my crimper. The 5/8" grossgrain ribbon is also rose red. The next layer is pink pirouette and it is only slightly smaller than a card front. Then the basic gray and baja breeze for the main image. I then covered the corner with prima flowers and silver brads.

A friend of mine sent me this stamp set and I love this image! I drew in the wall and floor and colored those in. This is for the VSN challenge Pride & Prejudice. P&P is my favorite book, hands down. I chose this image because she is reading a book drinking a cuppa joe and I can see doing that while reading. I created the background myself. The challenge was to use felt of some sort. The flowers are felt.Stamps: Sprinkles, Rubber Romance
Paper: Baja Breeze, So saffron, Whisper White
Ink: Brilliant Blue, So Saffron, More Mustard, Bravo Burgandy, Basic Black, Close to Cocoa, Blush Blossom
Accessories: Felt Flowers, Buttons

This acrylic rack was another find from the store. As you can see it's just got all my general stuff and I love how its laid out so that I can see everything.
I put my water color pencils in the white cup and my regular colored pencils in the brown cup. I like them at my fingertips like that. :) You can kinda see my embossing gun hanging on the shelves on the left. I screwed in hooks for some things.
Here is all my business materials. The paper sorter was another find at the store. They were in great shape and just needed a little cleaning.
This is the next big thing we found. It's a card display. I haven't put my cards in there yet but plan to do that tomorrow. I'm beat tonight!
We did some research online and what we got for a very small amount of money could have cost 5 times that if bought new!!!!

I covered the 'stars' with white craft ink and embossed with a snow white sparkle embossing powder. They turned out beautiful imo.
thanks for looking! :)
