SQSC and LNS together as one...

The Sketch for this weeks Stamping Queens Sketch Challenge was deceptively easy:

In reality, I struggled! How to incorporate such simple elements and still keep my card balanced....and still use my beloved techniques?
I decided to use the color theme from this week's LNS Challenge: Use Night of Navy, River Rock and Cajun Craze for the card. This makes me happy because my beloved Well Worn Paper using some of those colors, too. I decided to use the Glassy Embossing Technique (in the February 2010 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter, and on the Emboss or Die CD) on one of the designer papers, and use that as my base. I layered on the sentiment, papers and ribbon and didn't move the elements around too much:
