Saturday Challenge # 16--Chipboard

This week's challenge is to use chipboard. Don't forget that this is the last week of SU's chipboard special: Purchase $35 of product and then get 25% off ALL chipboard! I made this card for this week's workshop wow demo challenge, which was to use chipboard. (Thanks for the idea, Patty!) Luckily, Beate's weekend sketch challenge had a nice big circle on it, so it was perfect!
First, I covered the chipboard circle with Bali Breeze paper. Then I covered the flower petals with So Saffron craft ink and embossed with Irridescent Ice for some sparkle. I wanted to use some nice big ribbon for the piece behind the flower, and I found this Regal Rose ribbon in my stash. I went to the color combo site here to find the 4th color. I had lots of options but chose Soft Sky. Since the ribbon is bulky and I added the hardware, I used dimensionals under the Soft Sky paper. Before I stuck it down, I added all the hardware. I used the mat from the Crafters Tool Kit to line up the brads. I adhered the Soft Sky to a layer of So Saffron mounted onto an Old Olive card.
This card is definitely different for me. I think it kind of looks like a Beate card. (Well, if I'd used Chocolate Chip, it would DEFINITELY look like a Beate card. LOL) What do you think?
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Be Happy; Paper: So Saffron, Old Olive, Soft Sky Prints DSP, Bali Breeze DSP; Ink: Regal Rose, So Saffron craft; Accessories: Irridescent Ice EP, On Board Blossoms & Basics, Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals, Styled Silver hodgepodge hardware, crafters tool kit
