OK! As promised last evening (Sorry for not posting the details right away!) here are the details to my first card...


I used the Technique Junkie Newsletter CD called Fancy Folds and Motions (this is the first cd, I collaborated with Pat Huntoon on) This technique is called the Marvelous Marquee.


Here are some more details:
Stamp Set: Relax a Bit
Cardstock: Orangie Smooth, White Storm, Hazelnut Tan
Accessories: Paper Trimmer, Scoring Tool, Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, White Gel Pen, Deep Olive Sheer Ribbon

I stamped the background with stamps from the set. I used Pink Pirqouette Cardstock, Black Cardstock from MFP and White Storn Cardstock. The patterned paper is Bittersweet Basic Grey.I used the luscious Rose Satin Ribbon and Mini Pink/ Purple Roses attached with Mini Glue Dots.
