  1. Susan this is a stunning card! I love the flower done with the chocolate ribbon it is just so beautiful and rich looking. Your embossing and background stamping look fabulous too.
    I'm glad you were inspired to try one of the flowers, you made a superb card with it.
    Thanks for visiting my blog this week and entering the JAI challenge.

  2. Beautiful Susan! your colours and that rose make such a luscious combination, you have certainly rocked the Kathy challenge.
    Thanks for playing at JAI.

  3. Your ribbon rose is beautiful and I was fortunate enough to have a one on one tutorial with Kathy on how to make these, so I should do more of them. Love the colours and embossing on your card. Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink this week.

  4. I really LOVE your ribbon rose in Chocolate Chip, Sue. All of the elements of your card are beautiful, as always, but the colour scheme particularly appeals to me.

  5. This creation blows me away. I want to know how to make the ribbon rose. It is BEAUTIFUL. So is the card.


  6. GORGEOUS CARD!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  7. Hi Sue,
    Love your card. Great colours and love that ribbon flower.

  8. This is so beautiful Sue! LOVE that flower and the use of the border punch.

  9. This stopped me in my tracks, it was so pretty. :) Did you use the brayer to get the white embossing pattern? I'm trying to figure out how you got it a different color on top of the background color. Simply beautiful!


Thank you for your lovely comments.
