Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge - Anything Goes!!

Well I'm back with another card for Loves Rubberstamps and this week's challenge is Anything Goes! So I started off using Crumb Cake as my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I just received the newest paper pack from Tim Holtz called 'French Industrial' and I also used some old paper pack by Tim Holtz called 'Shabby Chic'. I alternated between newest collection with oldest. I then used the one of the newest Spellbinders die called 'Radiant Rectangles'. On top of this I cut out another frame using another new die called 'Gold Labels Four'. With the papers that I used and I used this stamp set called the 'Eiffel Tower Collage by Sweet Pea Stamps which you can find here: http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_304/Collage-Stamps.htm so I decided to make my own background paper. So I used the following colors; Cobblestone, Taupe by Vivid and Rouge Fluid Chalk all by Clearsnap. I just stamp each colour using my stamp as my applicator until there was no more ink. Then I sponged in more colour using my white foam tips & using the same colours. Then I took a background stamp and over stamped using a white pigment ink. I heat set my paper using a hot iron. I then used my stamp using black pigment ink and embossed using black EP and stamped onto my colored background paper. I added a sticker from Tim Holtz 'French Industrial' Salvage Stickers. I added 'Greetings' using a JustRite Stamp set called 'Seeds of Summer' using black crafter's ink and black EP. I then took a couple of Tim Holtz markers a pink and a green to color in the roses and leaves. You find some JustRite and Tim Holtz product's here in the store; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_307/JustRite-Papercraft.htm And I finished it off using some pink ribbon.
