Creative Crew- Eastern Elegance Collection for Someone Special

I made this card for the Creative Crew September 2013 challenge.  This challenge is CCREW0913DF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - DSP/Color Focus: Our journey of self improvement begins with Eastern Elegance designer papers or the colors crushed curry, coastal cabana, smoky slate and whisper white.

Make a project using these colors for someone you admire. Tell us why this person is significant to you.

This card was super quick and easy to make. Since I had to use the Eastern Elegance paper or the colors of the Eastern Elegance paper, I wanted to shake it up a bit, and use the Eastern Elegance paper but keep it very simple as well.  That was my part of the challenge!

I wanted to make a birthday card for my sister.  She is my best friend.  She was the first person I thought of when I read the challenge.  We are four and half years apart but I talk to her everyday.  Either on the phone or in person, we speak to each other!  We are always texting silly things to each other.  I hope my boys grow up to be as close as my sister and I are now!
I recently got the Cycle Celebration Stamp Set and could wait to break it out and use it!  I loved the samples in the catalog made with this set and I have to say that is what sold me!  But there are ssssooo many possibilities with this set!  I couldn't wait to stamp those candles and make my own background paper.  I used several different ink colors: coastal cabana, smokey slate, soft sky, and pool party.  I loved how all these colors worked together!

I broke out my Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set again.  I am hard pressed to put this stamp set away since I use it so much!  It really is the best stamp set I own!  I am not sure I have ever used one stamp set more, and I have only had this set since May!!!
I used the Apothecary Accent Framelit set to cut out my cycle.  
I love using parts of the stamp set on the inside of the card.
The Envelope Liner Framelit set finished this card with a coordinating envie!
This card turned out so nice, I used the same format for another card!
