Great Impressions: December Monthly Challenge

Hi, friend, and happy Sunday!  I'm back today with a card I've made for this month's challenge at Great Impressions!  We're looking for any creation that uses a stamp from the Great Impressions online store!  Come and take a gander at my card...

I started by creating a background by sponging different blues and misting it with some glimmer mist.   The blues were sponged on from lightest to darkest from bottom to top to create an ombre effect.

I then heat embossed F588 Dandelion Silhouette and A118 Blowing Seeds a few times onto the background using black glittery embossing powder.  I decided to add more shine by adding some glitter glue.  I then added some black stitched ribbon  as an anchor.

Part of B233 For Friends was stamped onto some white card and punched out with a small oval.  Another small oval punched out of black card was used to shadow the sentiment and it was added to the stitched ribbon.

The panel was then layered onto some black card and added to a card base that was layered with some blue and white polka dot patterned paper.  I think this color scheme looks so pretty together.  What do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my creation!  Hop over to the Great Impressions blog for more inspiration and come play along with our monthly challenge, too!  If you use stamps from Great Impressions, you'll be able to link up your creation in our Customer Gallery, too!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
