Oriental Blue Suede Rubies CC254 MMSC37

This card is for 2 challenges:

1. Splitcoaststampers' Color Challenge - CC254, using bashful blue, soft suede, ruby red and a neutral of choice - with dessert option of stripes, which I incorporated with gold cording on the red strip at the bottom. This challenge can be found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=476785; and

2. Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - MMSC37 - which can be found here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/.

My main image panel is a free sample from Dover Publishing. The background papers are cuttlebugged with one of my new Asian folders, which I couldn't wait to try!! LOVE them!!!
