Greenhouse Gala Word Play

I've seen a number of projects from the Technostamp Monday 
Lunchtime Challenge.    This card is an entry in the TSSC133 Challenge
and is heavily influenced by a card by Mary Brown.
It uses the wonderful Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper and
the Word Play stamp set.

A Marina Mist cardstock base was embossed with the Big Shot
Elegant Lines Embossing folder.  

The Word Play Sentiment was colored with Markers, to enable
emphasis of different parts of this stamp.

Lastly, embellishments included the Pear Pizzazz Ribbon
and Rhinestones.

just believe

This is a case of a layout by Silke Ledlow.   I used the wonderful new set,
Just Believe.  The colors are White, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight,
and Pear Pizzazz.
I didn't have ribbon to match the Daffodil, so I used my marker to
color a strip of White Organza Ribbon.  It is soooo easy to 
get just the ribbon color you want with your markers.
Lastly, I added Rhinestones to add some "pop".
