Inspiration from a Sketch, a Photo and a Birthstone

There's a photo of flowers for the  Inkspirational challenge. I've used the purple flowers as inspiration for this card. I had this little piece left of a Maja Design DP with purple roses. I used it for the center panel of this card. I've had this purple ribbon with flowers for ages, thought it would work perfectly with the purple flowers theme. The layout of the card is inspired by the wonderful sketch over at Our Creative Corner
The image is a digi from Darcy's Diaries, colored with Promarkers. I made folds of organza and punched a border of vellum paper, added a doily, two ribbons, and all edges have been machine stitched.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Our Creative Corner - Sketch
2) Inkspirational - #7 Photo
3) ABC Challenges - Stitching
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

What lovely, calm colours you've used. I think the image looks great against the rosy background paper - like sweet, old-fashioned wallpaper.
