Just Us Girls #119 - Technique Challenge

Hi all!  Did you all survive Friday the 13th?  Up here in Buffalo, NY, we got hit with our first storm of the season.  Yes, I said FIRST snow storm!  We have not had any snow on the ground until yesterday. And it took me almost and hour and a half to get to work!  There was a 10 car pile up on the Thruway which held things up for hours!  It wasn't an enjoyable ride!

But today is better, it's Saturday and the long weekend is ahead, and we have a cool Just Us Girls technique challenge for you!  Our newest JUGs member, and Moxie Fabber of the Week, Lynn Mangan, chose the collage technique.  I had such fun with this one!  You can find the instructions in the SCS Resources here.
I started with a stamp set I purchased at a stamp show from Darcie's booth (there's no name on the package and I couldn't find it online).  I started with a piece of white cardstock and stamped it with SU's retired canvas background in Basic Gray.  Then I stamped the other images in Basic Gray, Tempting turquoise, and the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black.  The flourishes were stamped off before stamping on the cardstock.  The edges were distressed and then I added more Basic Gray ink to define the edges more.  The ribbon is Basic Gray taffeta.  I had to add something else, so I just added some silver pearls to each side.
You have to stop by the JUGs blog and the girls' blogs to see their amazing collage stamped cards.  They are listed below.
