Stamptacular Sunday Challenge

This card was made for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #7 to use Pink, Green and Brown. I went to visit a friend today and spent about 3 hours travelling. I wasn't driving, so I did this sketch for myself. Stamptacular Sunday Challenges need to be done with only one challenge, so that meant I needed to come up with my own sketch!!

This is what I drew (please forgive the messiness of it!!) :)
Here is the card I created....My ideas for colour placement and such changed when I got down to making the card! I used a white base, with a white layer (which I used my swirls CB folder on). Then I adhered a 3x51/4" piece of chocolate paper to split up the front of the card. Then I cut a pink piece (1/8" smaller than the chocolate panel) and layered it. Then I stamped that pink piece with my Hero Arts French Script stamp in Close to Cocoa. Then I added the pink flower, added a button to the centre of it and some ferns from my fern punch. The ribbon was tied in a knot at the top of the card.
