ODBD SLC 63- Sentiment Only Challenge

Here is another card using Our Daily Bread Designs sentiment only challenge. I used Early Espresso for the base, Lush 'Brown Diamonds' from My Mind's Eye paper collection for the second layer. For the third layer I used another piece of paper from the collection called "Natural - My Boy". I used the Tasteful Trim die to cut out the 2 scallop edges out light green and brown glitter paper. I made my own background paper for the sentiment by taking a Magenta stamp C22056-0 inking with Olive Pastel Fluid Chalk and stamping on the shimmery white paper until there was no more ink on the stamp. I did this with Chestnut Roan as well then I went back in a sponge in the same colors with a white foam tip for each color a technique I learned from Cathie Allan. Then I took the Magenta stamp using black pigment ink, stamped on colored background paper that I just made and embossed with black EP. I cut and embossed it by using Spellbinders Label # 9. Applied Molasses Smooch ink around the raised embossed rim. I stamped saying using black pigment ink from the set Tulip Tag  from Our Daily Bread Designs using Shimmery White paper. Embossed using black embossing powder. Cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Circle Lg and again sponged Ice Jade and Chestnut Roan to tone down the white. Applied Molasses Smooch ink around the raised embossed rim. I cut out the Italian Flourish doily using Chartreuse metallic cardstock and laid this under my sentiment. Before attaching all this to the base of the card I laid down Maya Arts brown ruffled satin ribbon and then Crochet ribbon on top. Tied a double bow using the Bow Easy and Early Espresso satin ribbon.
