A Card For ?

Hi there, this card is for two challenges. Keesh's latest colour challenge (I love the colours) and Beate's weekend sketch challenge this week hosted by Charmaine. As soon as I saw the colour for Keesh's challenge I immediately thought about using the 2 flowers I had stamped at Kel's place last week when I was trying out her Embrace Life set. Scroll a bit further down and look what Keesh used, exactly that. I hope she doesn't mind me using the same stamp, only difference is her flowers look a thousand times better. I did however like her idea of using half pearls on the flowers and I have copied that idea. The sentiment reads "You've outdone yourself again". I know just the person to give this card to. I won't say anymore in case she reads this, but she deserves it so much. I hope she'll like it. So here is the sketch and the colours and of the course the card.

Supplies Used:
Card stock - Purely Pomegranate, Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Paper - Prints DSP Rose Red (which to me is like Purely Pomegranate. I actually thought it was until I grabbed my catalogue out to see what this paper was exactly called)
Ink - Purely Pomegranate, Pumpkin Pie
Stamps - Embrace Life, Friendship Blooms, Congrats
Other - Purely Pomegranate ribbon, dazzling diamonds, half pearls, slit punch, blender pen
