Challenge: Card Patterns 14 using Alcohol Ink Splatter

Hold on to your hat!  Yes, this is my second post this evening!  
Things are really looking up for me and my muse, let me tell you!

I made a card for the Card Patterns #14 card sketch challenge.  Click here to see the challenge.  This is another Alcohol Ink Splatter card (see my last post for the first one).  As a matter of fact, I used up the scraps from the first card to make this one.  I just couldn't waste this gorgeous paper.
I used Stampin Up Ornamentals stamps with Jet Black Archival Ink over the alcohol ink splatter background on glossy white cardstock.  I also used the swirls embossing folder with my Cuttlebug for the embossed background.  The cardstock is SU Always Artichoke.
Here's a nice close up of the front.  
That gorgeous lush ribbon is from here.... and it's a great price. 
And here's the inside layered and embellished to match the front.

Please stop back again soon because I have so much cool and fun stuff to share with you.  I just cleaned up my studio after stamping ALL weekend and at last count, I had made 16 new cards.  Yes, you heard me correctly.... 16 new cards!  That means there will lots of updates here this week.  So please bookmark me and come back. 

Have a great Monday.
