Colour Create (Week 16) and Flourishes Timeless Tuesday (FTTC16) (Add Project Tuesday!!!)

This card was made for two challenges; Colour Create and Flourishes Timeless Tuesday. Colour Create wanted us to make a card with the colours of Sky Blue, Tan and Ecru. The colours I had at home were Sahara Sand Paper, Vanilla Paper and Bashful Blue DSP and regular paper. I stamped the sentiment in a soft brown by Memento.
The card measures 5x10". The Flourishes challenge is to make a square card!
I added a little scallop edge under the middle panel to add some more femininity to the card. The ribbon is from Walmart but I just love it. It is soft blue and has such a pretty sheen to it.
**EDIT**
After I posted this, I was on Vickilyn's blog and saw the Stamps and Smiles Challenge to make a peek-a-boo treat holder. I was so inspired by Vickilyn's creation, I decided to try one myself!! What a FUN project!!! I decided to use the papers I already had out and to create a little matchy treat holder for my square Flourishes Colour Create Card!! Now I have a cute little set to give to a friend!!!
Thank you for stopping by!!
Happy Stamping!
