Bloomin' and Paper Piercing

Hello Everyone
...
I created this card for a workshop earlier this year. My lovely hostess had especially requested a project using aqua painters and the piercing mat and tool - so this is what I came up with.
...
I started with a card in Always Artichoke and a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock, with the corners rounded with the corner punch.
...
I used the Bloomin' with Beauty stamp set and stamped the flower image using the marker direct to stamp technique. Then I used the aqua painter and a little ink to add colour to the flower. I stamped the sentiment in Always Artichoke ink for a subtle effect.
...
Next I used the piercing tool and mat to create the pattern on the Vanilla cardstock, then wrapped the gingham ribbon around the top - securing with glue dots.

...
This card works in so many colourways - but this one is my favourite.
...
Hope you like.
