Sweet Sunday Sketch!!!

I've been wanting to participate in the Sweet Sunday Sketch over at Karen Giron's Blog for the past three weeks.... and FINALLY I've made my card BEFORE the deadline. Karen provides a sketch and all we have to do is come up with a design. So... here is the Sketch we had to work with.
And here is the card I came up with:-

Yep...you guessed it I've used Pinks and Greens AGAIN!!! I just can't help myself and I seem to be having a Bodacious Bouquet moment also... seems to be popping up on quite a few of my cards lately.

Anyway... I've used Old Olive as the base and layered it with some Very Vanilla and a piece of Old Olive DSP from the Summer Picnic DSP Pack. Onto that I've used some Certainly Celery and Certainly Celery DSP then another layer of Old Olive and Very Vanilla. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet and is stamped in Rose Red and the flower is from the Bodacious Bouquet set. I've coloured the stamp with my Stampin' write markers in Rose Red and Regal Rose to get the darker effect on the outside of the flower. Add a dash of Regal Rose Ribbon, some brads and pop it up on some dimensionals and 'Voila' all done.

Hope you like it.

Bye for now.

Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- Bodacious Bouquet, Short and Simple
Card:- Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery, Summer Picnic DSP, Certainly Celery Prints DSP.
Ink:- Regal Rose, Rose Red, Old Olive
Accessories:- Brads, Dimensionals.

Just stunning Sarah! I am a pink and green girl too - they are definitely my 'go to' colours when I can't think of another combination!!

I love pink and green and your card truly is delightful! Using ribbon for the bottom panel is brilliant. I would have never thought to do that! Great work, I love it!
