First Fred She Said Challenge!

Oh Wow! Tracey, from Fred She Said has a New Blog! It is a Challenge Blog and you can find it here! Be sure to check it out for Challenge Card Qualifications and be sure to enter for a chance to win some GREAT PRIZES!
Today is the start of the very first Challenge on the FSS Challenge Blog, so be sure to check out all the work from the DST Members and keep checking back to see all the lovely work posted by Challenge Entrants!
OK, here is my card. I have used 3 Different sets of Tracey's to come up with this card. :-O
The first two layers have been Digitally Layered in Photoshop. The only 3-D elements on the card are the Flowers, the ribbon and pearls. The Lime Green Strips is from the Pinstripe Paper Freebies, the Purple and Yellow Stripe with the Green Leaves is from Fred's Flowers v3 - Purple Blossoms Kit, and the rest is from the Brand New set Fred's Flowers v6-Daisies with Bracket Borders. I colored the pieces with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and used Baby Oil, in my version of the Gamsol Technique to blend the piece behind the flowers. The flowers I did Dry Blending on. The flowers are shaped and layered with regular glue and little yellow 1/2 pearls put in the center of each. I used Double Sided Sticky Tape behind my ribbon to hold it in place and stuck a sprig of pearls in the knot of the ribbon with Aleene's Jewel-It.
