Snowglobe Faux Tile Filigree Background

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 301 - Faux Tile Background. I made another STITCHED RIBBON FLOWER following Beate's Tutorial for today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 95 - Flower Accents. My focal image was stamped in soft suede then stamped off before stamping on vanilla which is a close match for crumb cake (since my SU order has not arrived yet), colored, cut out and popped up on dimensionals for Saturday's JUST US GIRLS CHALLENGE # 61 - 3D. My layout is from Friday's CLEAN & SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 118 - Sketch and my color combo is last Tuesday's lucious COLOR CHALLENGE # 298 - Chocolate Cherry Crumb Cake.
Stamps: Snow Globe, Filigree
Paper: vanilla, chocolate chip
Ink: cherry cobbler, soft suede
Accessories: ribbon, lacey ribbon, button
Techniques: Faux Tile Background, Distress sponging, 3D
