Ribbon Reel Challenge 28 Spring Colors

Today I'm playing along with the Ribbon Reel Challenge #28 - Spring Colors.  Take a look at this inspiration photo!    WOW!  What a feast for the eyes (and the tummy).  This spread looks fit for a Queen!    You can get all the details for the challenge here.  The challenge asks that you  use  DRY EMBOSSING plus IVORY/WHITE, LILAC, PINK and   SOFT GREEN/TURQUOISE plus RIBBON.  I saw that fantastic cake and decided to make mine into a Birthday card.  I was inspired by all the beautiful roses, the pretty  pastels, and that satiny ribbon. 



I've been looking at the Spellbinder Edgeabilities for a while - I thought it was time I used some.  It was a little trial and error.  I had to tape the dies on the edge of the cutting plate to get a clean cut since my plates are a bit warped, and tape down the paper you're cutting too  - so that it doesn't move when you run it through again to emboss.   Don't ask me how long it took me to figure all that out!   :)
Thanks for having a look!

Jeanne

Stunning doesn't begin to describe this card Jeanne, you can't tell where the inspiration photo ends and your beautiful card begins, you nailed the colors and feel so perfectly. I love the layering with the edgeabilities and the beautiful roses. The stick pins add a very elegant touch to an already perfect card.

Tape the what to the what? :) I think I'll read back over that again. I'm having problems with the dies not cutting all the way through...but this collection of outstanding shapes has me shaking my head in awe. I really like your design here, SOOOO much. :D
