H2H 123 Challenge

It’s Monday-time for a new challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges!  I am not a fan of Monday’s, but I love a new challenge!  This week’s challenge is to create with 1 stamp, 2 pattern papers and 3 embellishments.  Close To My Heart products are required to enter the challenge, but your card is not required to be 100% CTMH.  The hardest part about this challenge was for me to decide which 2 papers and which 3 embellishments!  Picking the stamp was the easy part.  All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
D1476 Card Chatter-Sympathy ( My 1 stamp)
X7153B Florentine Paper Packet (My 2 papers)
Z1732 Seam Binding Ribbon (Embellishment 1)
Z1336 Pearl Opaques (Embellishment 2)
Z1718 Garden Wooden Accents (Embellishment 3)
Z2123 Goldrush Ink
E21 Copic Sketch Marker

Design Tip-The decorative shape and layer were cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge.   The shape is found on page 55 of the booklet.  I tweaked the shape in Design Studio.  I am sure you could do the same with a Gypsy or in Cricut Craft Room.  Here are the measurements-

Inner shape was cut from the Layer Design-

I used the main shape for the Layer-

All edges were sponged with Goldrush Ink. The seam binding ribbon was also sponged with Goldrush Ink.  I colored the pearls with the Copic Marker to more closely match the Vanilla Cream cardstock.

I have also entered this card in the following challenges-
