new GKD set "Spring Florals"

I made this card for the new challenge Gina has posted over at STV in search of a new Center Stage Design Team Member for March (who will receive ALL the new March releases!). The requirement is to make a card using one of the new releases in February and with two colors also from the February release.
I love this card IRL, but it doesn't photograph well at all....we have until Wednesday to submit our cards, so may not submit this one. Will do another card with this set and then decide!!
The two new colors from GinaK used here are :
Creme de Menthe
Lemon Drop

The card base is  GKD's "All Spruced Up", first mat is Creme de Menthe, second mat is a light off-brown cardstock from Michaels that was run through CB folder. Image is stamped with Vivid Coffee Bean and colored with Copics, matted onto All Spruced, matted onto Lemon Drop and matted again onto Creme de Menthe. This is raised on dimensionals. The mats were distressed with the sponging technique and distress tonic tool. Added stash ribbon that matched the Creme perfectly and tied bow with GKD's new ribbon matching the Lemon Drop....and gotta love those nesties!

Copics: Y02, Y06, RV20, G21

Have a blessed day!

PS   Best wishes to everyone who enters!!! have no idea how Gina will chose...there are already the most gorgeous cards entered!!! it's for sure that someone is going to be doing the happy dance!!!

Hi Linda,
Beautiful card. Love the embossing and layering and the floral image is so well done. Great sentiment. Another winner.

I do love the combined ribbon! This is a beautiful card. Good to go, I'd say, but I guess you might come up with another beauty.
