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.
