Oh the Inspiration!

I have the 6x6 Basic Grey paper packs of Phoebe and Stella Ruby. I found a sheet in Stella Ruby that totally inspired me to stamp a background for a card today.
I began with Chocolate Chip cs and bleach....didn't quite turn out like I had originally thought...so i turned to stamping over the bleached cs with craft ink..this was working!
I used the Wild Rose DD set from SU! and the Letter Press set from SU!
I used my craft spots in So Saffron, Regal Rose, Rose Red and Bravo Burgundy and Always Artichoke.
I stamped off a few times for some lighter more subtle roses in the background, and stamped over with letter press, then over that with bolder roses...I am very pleased with this card, I love the look of it!! The stitched ribbon is from May Arts, I was finished and as an after thought I added a Faux Prima to the front of the card. My faux prima's are from a silk bunch of flowers that I dismantled and re-assembled with a brad in the middle. I will show you both views of the same card. Please comment on which way you prefer it and tell me what you think of my masterpiece. *wink*

Well, hmmmmm, which one???? I really like them both, but I guess because I am looking at them together I prefer the top one because the friend tag isn't obsured.

They are so beautiful! The background really does look like designer paper. Great job!
