Fluffy flowers

If you are here for the CRAFT blog hop, please click here.

Hi all,
I hope you have had a good week.  I enjoyed looking at the portraits at Daisy's school on Tuesday.  It was great to see what everyone used.  I went to a Jamie Oliver at home party on Wednesday at a friend's house.  There were lots of kitchen gadgets and oven ware there, but I was quite good and only bought two things.  We have so many unused kitchen gadgets in our cupboards, I didn't think hubby would be too happy if I bought even more!  The weather has been awful for most of the week.  Let's hope it clears up for the weekend.
Onto my card.  I have really enjoyed using my 'proper' stamps and hopefully will have some time to do more soon.  For this card, I resist stamped a Penny Black flower image, and also stamped it in pink on the background, which is inked with Victorian Velvet Distress ink.  I have also used a SU script stamp and a Debbi Moore stamp I have had for years, but never used.  The papers are more magazine freebies.  I pleated some organza ribbon. I have never done this before, and it was less of a faff than I thought it would be.  The flowers are made from very soft net that I had in my stash and the sentiment was stamped using my Studio G alphabet stamps.
I would like to enter this into the following:
Charisma cardz - pink and girly
Crafty Ribbons - Flowers
