Wish Big!

Hi everyone!
Hope you had a great weekend! I made this fun card for my best friend's 30th birthday and I think it should get to her in time too!

I was inspired by Belinda's challenge and those this dress off which to base my card.

I definitely didn't use all the elements, but I like the black background with the vibrant colored flowers and the sash aka ribbon!

Anyone have any tips how to get rid of stray embossing powders...I used the embossing buddy thingy first over my paper, but still ended up with a few stragglers!

Have a great day!

Stamps: Star Prints, In Bloom
Ink: Versamark
Paper: True Black, Raspberry Fizz, Plum Pudding, Scarlet Jewel

See that woman with the paint brush has the idea, I just pick at them with my fingernail. :) Neat card, great job on the inspiration.

OMG - this is gorgeous! Love the contrast against the black!
I have no tips with ep apart from painstaking removing every bit of stray ep with a fine paintbrush - takes AGES! LOL! Well I can't see any stragglers on your card here so I wouldn't worry anyways!
