Cream, gold and pink

Stampendous Color Challenge

I came across this lovely color challenge at the Stampendous blog through Suzanne's blog.   Though we're not required to use Stampendous stamps, I was surprised to see that this lovely His Name Tree stamp is made by Stampendous, dated 2001. I haven't used it in years and was so pleased to see how nicely it came out using these lovely colors.  It's a fairly simple card because an extra sentiment isn't needed and the design even shows you where to place the gems!  I simply stamped it in Versamark, embossed in Ranger's Super Fine Detail Gold powder, and then added lots of pink pearls and gems, and a bow made of seam binding dyed with spun sugar distress ink, centered with a brad from Suzanne.
