Friend Card - Lilac's

I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to emboss the base card then tied the ribbon by PTI (Plum Pudding Satin) around the bottom and tied into a knot.
The stamp set used is Blossoms Abound by Stanping Up I started with the branch inked with Papertrey Ink shades spring moss then used the lighter shade Lavender Moon on the bottom lilac then used the plum pudding shade on the top lilac the my friend was also inked with plum pudding.
I layered the stamped images with Plum Puddding and an Olive colouered card stock.
The first card you see is my 2nd attempt at the stamps the one below was my 1st.
I always get Chris my Hubby to comment on the cards and I'm afraid that he wasn't keen on these, but as I liked them I thought I would show you all anyway ( a good example of You can't please all of the people all of the time)

This card was the 1st card I made with the stamp set.
