Stamp with Us Recipe Challenge

I know what your thinking. 2 posts in 1 day. Well, for the next two days I am working, and besides that I wanted to post my card for the recipe challenge over at Stamp With Us. By the way, for those who may be interested, the girls over there are starting their 2nd round of fun and projects on August 1st. Would love to see you there.
Now for the important bit - for this challenge we had to use
2 x Patterned Papers,1 x Ribbon and 1 x Piece of Hardware.
I used Rose Red for the base and Close to Cocoa. My 2 patterned papers are from a retired lot called Berry Bliss. If you have had a chance to peruse my blog you will see that I made my Origami Box below in the same colors. My ribbon is also retired, unfortunately, it being the Purely Pomegranate 1" satin, and my hardware is the flower buckle. I also added 2 watercolor flowers from the Fifth Urban Floral stamp set. I was pleased with the overall effect. Hope you like it too.
Have a great day or night where ever you may be.
