swapping flowers

I made this card for a swap my upline hosts. It's actually not that difficult to make this card. Start with Old Olive cardbase, Pink Passion and Whisper White cardstock, Echoes of Kindness hostess set, Old Olive ink, and Rose Red ink. I used 1/4" and 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbons, pink rhinestone brads, 1/16 hole punch, and the ticket corner punch. I used a blender pen and the inks to color the flowers and leaves. You could also use rose red for the mat, but I actually built this card around the idea that I wanted to use Passion Pink, which is a color I hardly ever use!
Well, we are expecting storms all day today, so maybe, just maybe I will be able to finally make a card today! I think I am going on week 2 without a single card made! Ahhhh! In the meantime, I have to get my Kindergartener ready for school now! have a lovely day!
