LSC210 A quick card

Hello and happy friday. I hope you are having a wonderful day! The weather is pretty nice here in Illinois today, so I will spend some time outside today.
Today's LSC on SCS was to create a quick card, limit layers and embellishments. It has been a while for me since I did that. But my new stamp set Upsy Daisy was perfect for this challenge, I just got it and haven't use it yet. I decided to go with the faux embossing technique ( at least I think that is what it's called) It was featured in one of SU's stampin success from a while back when I was a demo.
To do this technique, all I did was stamp it first in chocolate chip ink, then used my stamp-a-majic and stamped it just a little bit off the first image with white craft ink. This gives it a 3D-look.
But before I did this, I sponged the bottom portion with kiwi kiss ink, and the top portion with bashful blue. Adhered to kiwi kiss CS, then added a strip of kiwi kiss to card front and put a white grosgrain ribbon around that. Image was then adhered to the card front. I could not resist the use of glitter, so I added it to the flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
