SCACD Friends with Heart Challenge #3

I made this card for the SCACD Friends with Heart Challenge #3. The challenge this week is to use your "ART." That means A= any stamp from SCACD, R = ribbon, and T= two patterned/designer papers.
Sorry I couldn't get a good photo of this card as we've had cloudy weather for several days now and it will continue through the rest of the week as well. I had to make the picture a tad darker so the colored and embossed background can be seen. I used an impressabilities flower template to make the letterpress background, inking it with Memento Lulu Lavender ink and running it through the Big Kick. It's a subtle look, but it looks much better IRL.
Anyhoo - I used the lovely violets image for this card and paired it with some Memory Box enchanted and BG origins DP. The ribbon is from my stash, and all supplies are listed below.
If you haven't checked out this challenge yet, just click on the badge on my side bar and it will take you there. If you've been playing along all month, you have a chance to win a very generous prize from SCACD!
That does it for me today. Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Carol, what a beautiful card. I love the ribbon and the papers as well as the embossed paper. You won't beleive this, but I used that same stamp yesterday, but I wasn't happy with my finished product. You have made me want to get it out again and start all over. Have a great cloudy day. We are experiencing the same weather. YUCK! Chat soon.
