Emma's Box Arm and Creative Crew Color Focus

Over on Splitcoast Stampers there is a Creative Crew that has challenges for us to do.  This card is the Color Focus Challenge.  Emma (Emma F - Lady & the Stamp) is on the Creative Crew and also has some very cool tutorials.  I used her Box Arm Tutorial for this card.  How fun!!!  Here is her blog and on the right you can view her tutorials.  http://www.ladynthestamp.blogspot.com/
This is my second post today so make sure you scroll down and see everything! 

For the background I inked the Teahouse stamp in Daffodil Delight and then sponged Early Espresso randomly over that.  Then I sponged the cardstock after I stamped it.  I distressed the edges and sponged some more.  I wrinkled the ribbons in my hands.  Yep, just wrinkled it up.  The striped Daffodil ribbon I also ran the Early Espresso ink pad over it.  All stamping was done on Crumb Cake.  Love that stuff.
Sets:  Build a Blossom, Something to Celebrate, Teahouse Background
Cardstock:  Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight
Accessories:  Blossom Petals Punch, Curly Label Punch, 1/2" circle Punch, Crystal Effects, Daffodil Delight Striped Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon, sponge
