The other FDP card

I couldn't seem to get happy with this card last night but sometime between laying down and waking up this morning a few ideas came to me! LOL So I decided to finish it and call it good enough because I've got to carry on with my Monday

(Click photo for detail)
4 5/8" x 5 7/8"

STAMPS: large swirl - DeNami Designs, small flourish - PSX, large medallion - Rubber Monger, writing - A Stamp in the Hand, you're special panel - $1 single clear stamp, Dimensions Crafts, Inkadinkado from Joann's

INKS: Distress Aged Mahogany, Brushed Corduroy, Peeled Paint, embossing ink - clear

SUPPLIES: pale pink translucent ribbon, flat-back rhinestone gems, flat-back pearl gems, sponges, embossing powder - clear, heat gun, small circle punch, double-ended blender pen, foam tape

TECHNIQUE: Technique Junkies Faux Designer Paper (I took a few liberties with this technique - I didn't do any crosshatch or edgeing with the colors - must have been mentally distracted when working on it!! LOL)

NOTES: kind of hard to see it but the rhinestones on the flower centers appear more white than silver irl ~ even tho I used the brown ink on the bkgd piece it ended up looking greenish so I emphasized that by using the Peeled Paint on the center piece ~ the words and swirly flowers are all one stamp so I stamped it twice, cut the center out of one, sponged the edges and pop-dotted it ~ also tough to see but the flower stems have been gone over with a fine-point blender pen dipped in Peeled Paint ~ I could NOT get the end of the ribbon to lay straight (grrrr) and trimmed it to within an inch of it's life LOL

Okay, wish I was going to sit at my stamp table and make something, but I have to go produce a little income now :o)
