However, I could not decide which purple to use: the retired Eggplant Envy, Rich Razzleberry or Concord Crush. I paired all of them with Kiwi Kiss, which I selected as my green, and thought the Concord looked best - but what to do about ribbon? If I didn't have a ribbon to match it would clash, so I got out all of my purple ribbon (not really that much of it in my stash) and luckily the only purple that any of my ribbon were remotely even close to was indeed Concord Crush. We had a winner! Then, wouldn't you know it, I forgot to leave space for the scalloped piece which actually contained the ribbon that all the fuss was about at the top:
So I went ahead and made a second card; here is the version with the ribbon and scalloped border:
I almost think I like the 'naked' one better, the flowers stand out more - what do you think? Which do you prefer?
The floral images are from Stampin' Up!'s Fifth Avenue Floral (a wonderful set for just about any color challenge), and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s Upsy Daisy set. These cards also meet the requirements of the following challenges:
- Whimsie Doodle Wednesday Challenge - no coloring,
- Stamp Something - Anything Goes, and
- Paper Sundaes Challenge 69 - birthday cards.

I like them both! Very nicely done. I love that stamp set and the colors are just perfect!!
LOVE the way you've layered those gorgeous blossoms! Such stunning, CAS takes on our color story! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!
I love both versions, Meredith, one CAS and one stepped up a notch! The way you've put the colors together is just regal...two totally beautiful cards! Great job!
Both of these are really pretty, Meredith! Gotta say that the top "naked" one has the slight edge in my book. :)
both cards are fabby takes on the colours in the colour challenge! Thanks for playing along at the Play Date Cafe :)
Stunning cards! I love the first card better.
WOW so beautiful...i also think the one without lace is a winner...but then again i would love to receive either of them
I love that you created two versions! The top one is my fave but I'm a CAS girl. ;) Great use of stamps and this week's colors. Thanks so much for playing along at The Play Date Cafe.
WOW! Two cards--I love the CAS first one--those layered flowers are FAB! I also love that second one--that purple ribbon is LUSH:) Thanks so much for playing along and joining in the fun over at the PDCC:}
Yes, I'm agreeing with you on the 'naked' one! It showcases the flowers better. :) That's just my opinion. THanks for playing with us at The Play Date CAfe!
These are GREAT! I love both versions! The "naked" one does make the flowers stand out better, but the first one has a lot to offer too! :-)
Both are gorgeous, but I can see why you like the naked one more. I'd be psyched to receive either one! :) Love how you used an outline image in different colors for this challenge!
Love love love both of your gorgeous cards! Thanks for joining us at the Play Date Cafe this week!
Can't decide. Love both of these cards. Thank you for sharing with us at Paper Sundaes this week.
