JUGs Wild Card & Color Cue #4

Since there are five Saturdays in the month of May it is "Wild Card Challenge" day over at the JUGs challenge blog.  The JUGs gals, and a lovelier group of gals you will not find, have thrown out the challenge to use the dry embossing technique.  I combined their challenge with the current Color Cue challenge over at the WPlus9Design Studio blog.  And in honor of WPlus9Design sponoring 2Sketches4You I used their Sketch #53.   I absolutely adore the WPlus9 sets Woodgrain Silhouettes and Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions and used both sets for the card.   If you have never been to WPlus9Design, you need to check the store and blog out.   Dawn, the owner, is an amazingly talented papercrafter and stamp designer.  As a matter of fact, right now she is showing sneak peaks of her newest sets and they are fabulous! 

I stamped the large woodgrain image from Woodgrain Silhouettes onto the Enchanted Evening cardstock using CTMH's White Daisy ink.   I embossed a piece of Lemon Tart using a Provo Craft embossing folder whose's name I do not know.  Stamped the flower images on PTI's white using Enchanted Evening, colored them with a blue Prisma pencil and then cut them out.  I did a little pleated ribbon treatment at the bottom. 
Thanks for taking a peak!
