Timeless Tuesday - Red Birthday Present

Hi All,

This is my first time participating in the Timeless Tuesday challenge for Flourishes - you can find this week's challenge HERE.  It is a sketch challenge this time, brought to us by Silke Ledlow.

I went with a Clean and Simple (CAS) card this time - usually I use a lot of layers, but I decided to scale it down this time.  My card base is Baja Breeze, and I embossed that partially with one of the Cuttlebug birthday folders.

The lined paper is from the retired Hand Drawn DSP from SU and punched with the Scallop Edge Punch.  The vertical layers are from the Bella Rose DSP pack, and I added some silver pearls to all the corners.

For the main panel, I stamped the present from All Wrapped Up onto Neenah Solar White CS with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured it with Copic markers.  I stamped it again, coloured it, cut out the bow, and mounted the bow on top with Dimensionals.  I cut out the whole image with Classic Circle Nesties, and sponged Sahara Sand ink around it.  I mounted that onto a white circle, then onto a Sahara Sand cirlce cut with my Scallop Circle Nesties.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

WOW! Love the colors you used on that package Robin. I would have never thought to do the ribbon in grays (silver). It's stunning with the red! And your coloring is exquisite!!
