Flourishes and Page Maps BasicGrey Contest

This will be a short post. Flourishes and Page Maps are teaming up for a BasicGrey-Flourishes Card Contest starting today that ends Sunday at midnight. They are offering a sketch to follow and try to win :)

I used fall colors and papers since it is now school season and just because I love and and all it's glorious colors ;)

I used Flourishes "Peaches & Cherries" and their "Seeds of Friendship" stamp sets stamped in Brilliance "Moonlight White" and Versafine "Onyx" ink. I used Tombows and Distress Inks to color in the image. I used papers from S.E.I, Webster's Pages, MME & The Girls Paperie. Then I used some chocolate ribbon to finish it off.
I used The following Tombows: 020, 991, 985 & 977 

I love how the white embossing turned out on my peaches, although my husband thinks embossing in the brown would have been better. I think it would look great either way, but I stayed with the white for something different. I like it so much I might try making another card with this technique :)
