SCS192 and Card Challenge

I made this card yesterday for SCS Sketch challenge SC192, but it's more than that! A friend of mine had sent a bunch of us loose pieces from a card she never finished to see what we could come up with. She sent the base, a full Saffron layer already embossed and distressed, and the white piece with the flowers and canvas details on it. I cut the saffron piece to use it for the SC192 challenge, added the brocade blue piece, added glitter to the flower centers (you can see it better in person, it really adds something to the look), made a tab, matted it on a cocoa piece and added the ribbon. Whadya think?

Sets: Watercolor Garden II, Totally Tabs, Fancy Flexible Phrases, Canvas
Colors: Close to Cocoa, So Saffron, Brocade Blue
Other: Tab punch, wide chocolate grosgrain ribbon, 2 way glue pen, dazzling diamonds, dimensionals, paper piercing tool
