Pleated Satin Ribbon and Field Flowers Stamp Set

I've been playing with Stampin' Up!'s Pleated Satin Ribbon this week, and decided to combine it with the Field Flowers stamp set for a spring card.  For many of you who live farther north than I do, this may be a stretch.  But the first crocus bloomed in my yard today, so I'm definitely thinking spring!

I really like 2-step stamp sets, and the flowers in this one are quite elegant. I knew I wanted to use Blushing Bride to go with the Pleated Satin Ribbon, but the Bravo Burgundy was a delightful surprise.  I stamped the Well Worn background stamp in Sahara Sand ink to give some texture to the focal point, then brayered it with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.

I couldn't pass up a tiny button from the Twitterpated set, since it goes so nicely with the Pleated Satin Ribbon, and embellished it with a Basic Pearl.

The Blushing Bride Pleated Satin Ribbon is layered on Certainly Celery Satin.  I played with the ends of the ribbon a couple of different ways, and decided to leave the Pleated Ribbon a little shorter than the Certainly Celery–to match the layering behind the focal point.

You can see that I used a background stamp on the Blushing Bride layer, although I used Sahara Sand ink so you may not be able to recognize it–Parlor Prints.
