Side step card

My good friend Wendy and I were shopping yesterday when we came across the Smooch Spritzers by Clearsnap. Completely new to me, they quickly caught my attention so I decided to purchase two colours: Log Cabin and Wine Berry. And of course, I couldn't wait to get home to try them! For the last couple of days I had also been working on a new technique, a side step card - gosh, it took me a while to get the measurements of this card right in cms!- and putting the two techniques together seemed the perfect way to spend my Monday evening! And here it is, the final product:

Cream, golden and copper cardstock; Bird stamp by DoCrafts Gstudio; Manuscript background by Hero Arts; swirls stamp by Rhonna Ferrer; Pirate Gold Stampendous Embossing Powder; Log Cabin Smooch Spritz; Inspirations Golden pigment ink; Metallic copper pigment ink; circle and scalloped circle punches; the sentiment is a golden sticker; the copper ribbon is from my own stash.

My side step card enters the following challenges:
CupCake Craft - Distressing
Ellephantastic - Distressing
Ooh-la-la creations - Birthday
Stampin B's- Birthday
Squigglefly - Ribbon
Alphabet Challenge - N for Nature
Sentimental Sundays - New technique/new style
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes

I need to practice a bit more how to use the Smooch Spritzers so please let me know of you are aware of any good videos out there :-)

Thanks for your comments.
