WICKED color challenge

I created this card for one of the new WICKED challenges over in the SCS forums. These are special challenges for Stampin Up demonstrators, and they are always fun to do. This particular challenge stated that we had to use only one neutral color such as Whisper White, and two - ONLY two - of the new In Colors. I put my thinking cap on and came up with this card.

I used Mary Jo's TSSC77 sketch from her Technostamper blog, and used ribbon in place of the torn paper panel. For the background, I stamped 3 different sizes of circles from the new Circle Circus stamp set with Melon Mambo ink on the same color of cardstock. To make the background pop a little bit, I used a white gel pen and colored in various areas of each circle.

Stamps: Circle Circus, All Holidays
Ink: Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay
CS: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay
Other: Bermuda Bay polka dot ribbon, White satin ribbon, white gel pen
