Both Way Blossoms Both Ways

Took a minor break from playing with Spring Mini stamps , but revisted my colour combo from yesterday. This card came out pretty much how I envisioned it... Both Ways Blossom stamped on Sahara Sand using StazOn, also stamped on Whisper White, flower coloured, trimmed and mounted over the flower on the Sahara Sand piece. This was then layered on a piece of Always Artichoke with some paper piercing down the left. Sentiment from Warm Words also stamped on Whisper White, punched with Word Window punch and attached with an artichoke brad, all mounted on an Old Olive cardbase. I really liked how it came out... but wanted to see what it would look like jazzed up a bit more.
On this card the cardbase has been stamped with the Paisley background using VersaMark, and I added some stitched artichoke ribbon from the Ribbon Originals 'Rustic Retreat' collection along with piercing around the Shara Sand piece. I was also really pleased with how this came out. Below you can see them side by side.

I agree this are both lovely. It's amazing how that little extra ribbon and paper piercing adds to the 2nd one.
