Affection Collection Friend card for colourq

Hi again bleeps. I am back to share with you a ColourQ#146 challenge that I decided to do again this week. I love this new Etruscan Elegance jumbo wheel and then embossing it with the Lacy Brocade makes it so pretty. And this Affection Collection that is a Sneak Peak of the Holiday Catalog also. So basically besides the card stock and ribbon it is all new stuff that we could preorder from the Holiday Catalog. Ah, the perks of being a demonstrator.   I love love love how this card turned out with the colors of the ColourQ challenge this week. What do you think? 

This is one of the sets they get at Convention in their convention bags.  :( how I wish I was there. I used the crumb cake as my card base and then stamped the no 1 banner stamp in Real Red and the design that so mimics the background so well I stamped in black and cut that out with the Window Frames Framelits also new. The FRIEND I stamped in Real Red onto Pear Pizzazz and punched it out with the Modern Label Punch as that is the shape in the design. I colored some Basic Pearls with a Red Sharpie and put those on the design. I sponged Pear Pizzazz around the Window Frames Framelits. I tied Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon around the card and then popped up the design with dimensionals. 

Here are the details: 
Stamp Sets and Wheel: Affection Collection, Etruscan Elegance
Card Stock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz
Inks: Black, Real Red,Pear Pizzazz
