Inspired Embelishments

I completed this card with two challenges in mind.  There was a picture to inspire and the other challenged us to embellish the design. I chose a digital stamp from Power Poppy and sized it for fit on my card design.  Next it was colored with copic markers and layered on orange card stock after die cutting with Stitched Square die.  I used design paperd and three different ribbons in the back ground.

The digi is called Winter Pick Me Up by Power Poppy.
Papers are from PTI, Melon Berry and Autumn Abundance.  Ribbon and Judy dots, and button  from my stash.

I was inspired by the colors in this photo. 

I am entering this card in Sparkle and Shine challenge HERE
