Pink Elephant meets Papertake Weekly

I think that this is the first card I've made that didn't have any stamping on it...not even a sentiment! I've combined the Pink Elephant Challenge of 'Ribbons & Die Cuts' with the colour combo of 'Pink, Orange & Brown' of this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge. I made this card on Tuesday night, and I quite liked the combination of colours then...but now I've seen it in daylight...I'm not so sure! lol
I've used the Cuttlebug 'Concentric Hearts' die (with pink and orange card), to make a flower shape, with two smaller flowers (cut with the 'Olivia' alphabet) for the centre. The sentiment is from the same alphabet set, and the polkadot ribbon is from Hobbycraft
