The Card Concept Challenge #33

The Card Concept Challenge #33 starts today.

Feel free to use any of the styles of the team, Guest Designer or better yet, share your own style by combining one or more of the styles.  Card styles are explained HERE.

Here is my card for the Freestyle/collage category:

I started this card by stamping and coloring the BOW from Altenew's Bejeweled.
For the Background I masked the bow and stenciled ARTploration's FOILED in two shades of grey.
From there I decided to add some PTI's Meadow Greens embossed in PINK on vellum...I needed to carefully cut some of the bow out to tuck the pink in and around it, giving some dimension:)..which lead to adding several Scrolls Dies from Penny Black.
The sentiment is from PTI Tiny Tags.
All this I layered onto a piece of vellum that had been dry embossed and a pretty pattern paper, edged with Brilliant PINK polka-dot Washi from Doodlebug Design:)
Lastly, I messed with sequins, using micro dots to stick them on.
I think it's funny how this card grew from a simple pink bow on a white piece of cardstock. HA!!

Hope you are inspired to play along at TCC.
