Just Because We Wanna challenge

I sat down to stamp tonight and this card just took on a life of its own. Don't you just love it when that happens? I had some black and white ribbon laying on my desk next to some Soft Sky card stock. That was the inspiration for this card. I know, I know, there is no black and white ribbon on the card. I changed my mind and went for this yummy satiny white ribbon instead. It just looked better.
I made this card for Jeanne and Sherry's challenge. The flower stamp had never seen ink until today.

I stamped the background using my Flourishes (Ronna Farrer) and Flower (Ronna Farrer) and Black Stazon Ink. I then painted the flowers using my Soft Sky Re-inker. All layers of the background and matting were embossed using my Cuttlebug and Textiles Embossing Folder. The main flower was outlined with Crystal Stickles and popped up using dimentionals. Card size is 5 1/4 square.
