I'll just be me in Cocoa, Vanilla and Teal

It's Wendesday and I still don't have my mojo back 100%...but I'm working on it! I tried to create a couple different cards last night, but only one of them "took". This card was made for this week's color challenge on Splitcoaststampers (CC232). The colors to use were Very Vanilla, Taken with Teal and Close to Cocoa. The only one of the three I actually had was Very Vanilla, so I just matched the other two as best I could.

I ran my Cocoa layer through my Cuttlebug using the Birds and Vines embossing folder. Embossing is great for filling in empty space. My tag was distressed with an edge distresser, then inked up with my "Cocoa" Colorbox Cateye. Using my *brand new* Silent Setter I added two eyelets at the top and ran some gorgeous teal sheer ribbon through them. It's very faint, but I used my chalk and shaded each "I'll Be..." with teal. The final touch was adding the gems.

It's not a complicated card, but I still like it.
