Last Card Standing Top Ten Finalist

Pinch me now.....I have made it into the top 10 finalist for the Last Card Standing competition with Taylored Expressions.
I am just in awe of the talent out there and I am so excited to get to advance to the next round.  Here is the card that I created that helped me move into the next round....
The requirements for the challenge were:
*Create a new/never published card for the challenge
*Use the theme Friendship
*Use at least one Taylored Expression stamp
*Use 2 or more patterned papers
*Use ribbon

Here is a closer look:

I used my Copic markers to color this sweet little Mocha Pearl stamp.  I added some white pen details as well as glossy accents and glitter to the image.  I used some ribbon as the water/waves against the rock.

I really *LOVE* this card and am hoping that I can create something just as fab for the next round......wish me luck!!
