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.
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
