Rhinestones and Ribbon

Using challenges for design inspiration is probably the only reason I get cards finished. I seem to work better knowing that there are limits and time constraints.
The pink cardstock and the heart paper were both die cut. The pink ribbon was added to the die cut shapes. The pink die cut panel was adhered to the card base and the rhinestones added. The oval die cut was backed with foam tape to adhered it to the card and the flower was added. The inside was decorated with some die cut strands to represent ribbons.
I purposely did not include a sentiment. It's something I will add when I decide to use the card.

I am submitting this card to the following:

    1. The pink background IS a die cut panel, Sue. Thank you for leaving a comment.
