French Foliage JAI42 sketch challenge

Hi all.
I have good news and some bad news. The bad news is... My home computer is DOWN AGAIN!!! OMG... Fried monitor. The good news is I emailed myself a few photos at work of some cards I made just prior to the big FRY thing at home. So I happen to have (at work on lunch hour), a card I think might work for the sketch challenge #42 at Just Add Ink.  Here is the sketch #42 at JAI

and here is my card.

I used the French Foliage Stamp set - My FAVORITE from the mini catty. I started with a cherry cobbler base and Very Vanilla CS as well as some pieces of Elegant Soiree' DSP.
I stamped a crackle BG stamp on the VV in Close to Cocoa ink, then used the French Foliage stamps in Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard Soft Suade inks. I tore the two sides of the VV CS and distressed all edges with Soft Suade ink. I tore the same two edges of the DSP mat and distressed all edges the same way. I glued the VV piece to DSP piece and wrapped with a piece of chocolate chip ribbon.  I then rolled the corner over with a pencil to make it curl over just a bit before adding it to card front.  .
The sentiment was done the same way as the VV piece then punched with the Decorative label punch, double matted with Cherry Cobbler CS of a second decorative label piece and popped up with a few dimensionals.

The inside was done the same as the front pieces with DSP on top at the left side of the VV CS.
I hope you like it.

thank goodness you emailed yourself!
Very pretty cards, love the French Foliage set although haven't used it yet myself. I like the way you curled the corner of the paper just seemed to go along with the leaves.
Nice job.
