MTME Pattern & Palette Challenges!

Hi all...I made a very quick card today for both the MTME Pretty Pattern (MTMEPPS09) and Pretty Palette (MTMEPPC09) challenges!  The sketch and the color palette were easy to use and just worked out perfectly for my card.  The funny thing is that I bought the ribbon you see on my card while I was out craft shopping last weekend.  When I saw Lisa's color selection, the lightbulb lit up!  PERFECT opportunity to use the ribbon.  Tangii's sketch made it easy to pull the palette together.  Some pretty paper and a layer of vellum...a little embossing and a pearled flourish, and I had a pretty, girly thank you card. 
I double looped my bow and added two extra tails by gathering my ribbon strips as I tied the bow down (hope that makes sense).  I adhered three blooms with a pearl brad using hot glue.  My paper is from my Love Notes Color Me Pretty pack (scaled to 5x7"), and my scalloped layer is my MTME Border Builders Elegance cut file.  The sentiment came from one of my new stamp set, Sentimental Occasions. I made this card for a sweet little gal who moved to Ohio last year with her family, Rowan Goble.  She was so sweet at Easter.  A co-worker was visiting and met up with her family during that time, and this little lady sent her home with a plastic egg filled with candies, chocolate and a large rubber ant, all for me!  LOL  Isn't that sweet?! 
Okay...that's all I have for you today.  Hope you find some time to play along with our new MTME challenges!  Tangii and Lisa and their teams are doing an absolutely amazing job each week!  Their projects have me drooling :]

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a fantastic week!!
