Pretty in pink

Good morning. It's time for Scribble and Scrap's 43rd Challenge to start.
As always it's anything goes as long as you have physically crafted it - no digital entries. The rules are simple and you can find them here.
There will be a random generated winner and then the top 3 will be showcased.
It was a dear friend's birthday this week so I have chosen to take the opportunity to show case the card I made for her as my Design Team card
I color tinted the edges of a 8x8 scalloped card blank using Tim Holtz abandoned coral distress ink pad. Then embossed a smaller piece of card with the Couture Creations tied together folder. Using a folder blank so the center of the card did not emboss. Then using same color ink I tinted the edges of this card and used a Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp in the center. I die cut the leaves and again color tinted these before placing over the corners.
The ribbon was again color tinted with the same ink, I tied this in a double bow and added gems from my stash to the center of the bow and around the card.
