Welcome to my blog!  

For this card I kind of went outside the box and used some different colors than I have done with other card I have made from the Simply Elegant Suite! 

I used a Blackberry Bliss card base, Card stock and ink.  Did some embossing on Vellum with Versa Mark ink and White Embossing Powder and used the Blackberry Stampin Blend to color in the White Crinkled ribbon. 

Here are the card cuts, instructions and supply list for this card:
