Ooh! I'm loving today's card! This one is for the Play Date Cafe challenge. It has such a unique color combination and some fabulous embellishments.

Check out the DEEtails:

I started off by stamping the PTI Dress Form in Perfect Plum to go along with the inspiration. I sort of just layered pieces together until I had something I loved. I included some Riding Hood Red pleats (check out the pleated skirt in the inspiration pic) with some More Mustard designer ribbon. I tucked in a More Mustard die cut with the stamped sentiment from the PTI Signature Series: Dress Form set. Then I added a ribbon flower* made with some Riding Hood Red Striped Grograin ribbon. And then my favorite touch... A while back, I fell in love with this card by Savannah O'Gwynn. I was finally able to track down those frames and nearly bought out the store. I'm finally using one on today's card. I backed it with some Perfect Plum card stock and adhered a mustard yellow rose to the center. I LOVE how this turned out. Thanks for peeking in! :)

Don't forget to make your own ribbon flower card and link up to my new I {Heart} Ribbon Challenge!
