Stampin' Up! Awash with Flowers and I create a Just for You, all occasions card

Hi all! At the moment, I'm trying very hard to get used to this new blogger format, and it is very difficult! I'm not sure I like it, but it is change after all! I have crafted tonight, so I do have a card to show you, not just my ramblings :)
Ok, so fairly basic here... a Basic Grey 4.25" Square card which I have layered Rich Razzleberry onto. For the main image panel, I have randomly stamped images from Awash with Flowers in Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry with outlines in Basic Grey. I mounted the image panel on top of the Rich Razzleberry layer and then stamped a sentiment from The Best is Yet to Come (a retired hostess sentiment set) in Basic Grey, cut it out using my circle punch and layered it on an Old Olive Scallop Circle. I added a piece of retired Kiwi Kiss ribbon (I don't have any Olive ribbon!) to finish of this card. 
I am entering this into 2 challenges tonight, the first is The Paper Players colour challenge, which was surprisingly easy for me, usually I struggle a bit with purples :) The second challenge is the new challenge blog Freshly Made Sketches which has a sketch this week
As always, thanks for dropping in, it makes my day seeing all the lovely comments you guys leave me :)
Happy Stamping!
