A Card for a Sketch & Color Challenge

I made this card for the PPA#83 Color Challenge here, AND for the Create with Connie & Mary Sketch#140 here.  The colors to use are Baha Breeze, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake, so naturally I thought of the Elegant Soiree DSP.
I started by running a piece of Crumb Cake thru the Big Shot with the Elegant Lines textured impressions embossing folder. I used some papers from  the Elegant Soiree DSP. I colored in the stamp from Punch Bunch with my Crumb Cake, Baha Breeze and Soft Suede Stampin' Write markers. I punched out the center with the 1 3/8 inch Circle punch. The Crumb Cake circle was cut with the Circles#2 Big Shot die. The Soft Suede circle was cut with the Coluzzle and ran thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. The Baha Breeze circle was punched with the 1 3/4 inch XL Circle punch and I used the 2 3/8 inch XL Scallop Circle punch for the Crumb Cake piece. The entire scalloped piece was popped up with Stampin' dimensionals. Finally, some 1/2 inch Baha Breeze Seam binding was tied into a bow.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Punch Bunch
Papers: Very Vanilla, Baha Breeze, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Elegant Soiree DSP
Inks: Baha Breeze, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Stampin' Write markers
Accessories: 1 3/8 inch and 1 3/4 inch XL Circle punches, Circles#2 Big Shot die, Coluzzle, 2 3/8 inch XL Scallop Circle punch, Stampin' dimensionals, 1/2 inch Baha Breeze seam binding, Elegant Lines and Square Lattice textured impressions embossing folders
