I made the same layout, same card, different colors. This one is for a dear loved one's birthday that is four days before St. Patricks' Day. I didn't really mean for it to come out so green. I make a lot of cards this color because green is my favorite color. Green is pretty neutral and not too girly. For the card base I used white card stock. Tap all over lightly with VersaMagic Tea Leaves ink pad. You want to use a fairly dry ink pad otherwise the white won't show through as well when you sand it. I ran it through the embossing folder and then lightly sanded just the peaks with sand paper to bring out the white. For the lower right flower I basted along one side of the ribbon, gathered the ribbon to create a flower, then sewed the button to the middle.
