On this card I used the marker and the scrunchy ribbon techniques.  To pick my colors I referred to the Color Coach 120148 which gave me Rose Red and Wild Wasabi for a creative combination to go with So Saffron.  I used the Wild Wasabi DSP paper from the subtles stack and dressed up the rose red by embossing the polka dots on it!!!  I made a scrunchy ribbon with the taffeta ribbon by pulling on a fiber in the middle of the ribbon and "scrunching" up the ribbon as I went.  I give myself about 11" when working for a piece to go along the width 4 1/4" of the card so I have plenty left to wrap around the base or if I want to trim and leave on the front there is ample ribbon.  I used mini glue dots to stick down the scrunchy ribbon.  I then used 3 of the medium sized pearls in the top right corner of the card to add the final touch!!!
Have a great day!
