Simply Another Colour Challenge

This card was made in response to Kristina Werner's latest colour challenge. After sitting and looking at my stamp sets for what seemed an eternity, I finally settled on using the Simply Sent set "Simple Delights". I used my Bashful Blue, Old Olive and Not Quite Navy markers to ink the square motif, punch it out with the 1 1/4" square punch and layer it on a 1 3/8" square of Old Olive. For the sentiment I stamped the square motif without reinking, then stamped the sentiment over top with Not Quite Navy ink. The ribbon is a piece of white taffeta that I stamped with a small motif inked with Old Olive and Not Quite Navy markers. Between the squares I placed some So Saffron brads.
After finishing the first card I realised I had enough stamped pieces left over that I could make another one, however for this one I substituted the stamped ribbon for some So Saffron ribbon from the Ribbon Originals Fairytale pack and left off the So Saffron brads. In the end I am not sure which card I prefer!
