Birthday/Diva Challenge

I made this card today for a challenge over at StampNation which
is celebrating it's third birthday today.
Happy Birthday StampNation!!!
If you haven't done so yet, you should check it out.
Heather, a member of the design team at StampNation
suggested I also enter this card into the
Dazzling Diva challenge 
This is the inspiration photo for the Dazzling Diva challenge
isn't it gorgeous!
And here's the card that Heather suggested would be great for
this challenge. It's like I chose the colors for my card based on this photo.
To make the baker's twine match the card I dragged a piece of the
whisper white across the elegant eggplant ink pad. 
If you try this I would advise you giving it time to dry. I didn't do that
and ended up with a smudge on the paper which is why you see stars on the card.

card stock: whisper white 100730
stamp sets: bring on the cake 121958 clear, 128490 wood,
