Late Night Inspiration!

....Or maybe that should be early morning inspiration! It's almost 1am here after a very long day, but I knew there was no way I could sleep tonight if I didn't get this card down on paper and out of my head!
Aren't the colours for this weeks Colour Inspiration Challenge gorrrrrgeous? I've used Old Olive in place of Kiwi Kiss and I still love the combo! I was so inspired by the plate too, I had to use this similar image....
The images from Mostly Flowers were stamped then punched with the 1 1/4" Square. The hardest part was lining them up into the grid (this is a 4 1/4" Square card by the way) but once you get the center one ok, you're good to go.

There's a little piece of cardstock in between the ribbon layers keeping it supported, and the brad "butts" are hidden in between the ribbon layers too.

Ok, I think I can sleep now that this is made!

Super cute Sarah! You've inspired me to get out my mostly flowers set: I had always thought a layout like this with this set would be great: but I had never thought to punch out the images, I was thinking I would need a Stamp-a-majig: duh! Thanks for the imspiration!
