Simply Stampin Challenge

Hi Ladies
The Challenge from Simply Stampin is a colour combo.
On Saturday I learnt a new technique using the very delicate dotted scallop ribbon border punch which Aly demonstrated at our Stampin up event which I wanted to incorporate into a card . This is what I produced:

I used Crumb Cake for the card  and layered a piece of Everyday Enchantment DSP on top of it. I then used a square piece of Baja Breeze and used the punch along each side but leaving the corners complete. this holds the whole piece together so that I could stamp in the centre with a stamp from the Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp. I then threaded a piece of  Crochet trim ribbon through the card . I finished it off with the Embosslits  Beautiful Wings die in Very Vanilla.
