You're a Gem of a Friend

Today is a quick post of a card I made for a friend. I love the colors and actually made several; each a little different. Here is my card.
I started with pacific point blue and layered with daffodil delight accents.
I embossed the card front with the new "Flower Garden" embossing folder. Then I stamped one blossom from "Fabulous Florets" several times in pacific point on w.w. cs and ran it through the BS using the square lattice emboss folder. I added that to a pacific point mat, and again with a daffodil delight mat.
I wrapped this stack with a frayed piece of wide striped daffodil delight ribbon and tied it with the tiny piece I cut off the edge, then I added to the card front. I stamped the sentiment from "You're a Gem" set in pacific point on w.w. and double matted with a daffodil scallop oval, and a pacific point large oval then popped it up with a few dimensionals overlapping the ribbon. 
I stamped another blossom from "Fabulous Florets" and cut it out leaving a hint of white and popped this up as well, then added a pretty blue rhinestone to the center.
 Here is a peek at the inside using a sentiment from "Happy Greetings" and a few more blossoms from "Fabulous Florets".

Very pretty Di, love the colors with just a touch of the DD which really sets it off. Don't you just love the Fabulous Florets set.

I love your colour combination Diane. The blue and the white with a dash of yellow makes the card very refreshing. I also like the technique you used to fray the ribbon. It cuts down on the width a bit and makes it more manageable.

Hugs Karen
