To be quite honest, I did not care for the inspiration piece at all and I didn't care for the color scheme either. That's what made this a real challenge for me! So, I decided to use the colors from the piece, Taken with Teal, Wasabi, and Black.
The diamond background stamp is from Beeswax.com; it was stamped with Versamark on the Taken with Teal cardstock. I used Marvy punches for the oval and scalloped oval. The stamp set is SU!'s (retired) Delight in Life, stamped with black Stazon ink. I used SU"s white gel pen for the faux stitching around the oval and in the center of the flower. The ribbon came from Michael's $1.00 bin!
