Brown like a chocolate

Hello everybody! How are you? We finally got some sun again today and it was lovely. Gosh, how I miss spring! Thank you all very much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I really appreciate it. Reading your lovely comments always puts me in a good mood. Hugs!

Today's card is a bit special. Why? I wanted to do something different so I used a big handmade flower instead of a cute image for the center of my card.

To make this flower I used a pretty wide dark brown ribbon. Isn't it great? I got this ribbon from my grandma and I love it. Button is from my stash. The beautiful creamy paper in the background is from K&Company's recycled pack of papers "Earth browns" and the brownish patterned paper is from Sizzix's Little sizzles "Earth tones". The doily lace was originally white, but I colored it with Tim Holtz's Brushed corduroy distress ink. In the corners of the strips I stamped with corner swirly floral clear stamp from Folia. For stamping I used Tim Holtz's ink as well. At the ends of the stips I added gold brads. I followed the sketch from Repeat impressions.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
