This is gorgeous Brooke!! You know what's crazy!?!? I just made a faux silk card today that I'm posting tomorrow using the little inspiration card I posted the instructions for on my blog the other day. It didn't have faux silk on it, but that's one of the things I changed in CASE'ing the card. Anyway, great minds think alike, huh?!? Love the way you used the colors from Kristina's challenge. I haven't played in one in a while and your card makes me think I've been missing out. Love it!!
