Wplus9 Color Cue

Hello everyone.  Today is Wednesday.  In a way the week is flying by.  I was afraid it was going to go super slow since we had such a short week last week.  Time is flying by for me.  I can't believe that in 2 and a half weeks my oldest son will be a kindergarten graduate.  When did that happen.  It feels like just yesterday I was bawling over the fact that he was starting kindergarten.  I am so proud of him though.  He has graduated from speech therapy a long time ago and is doing so well.  His writing and reading has grown leaps and bounds.  His self-esteem is so strong, sometimes too strong :) 
Anyway, on to the card for today.  I am participating in another Color Cue from Wplus9.  I really hope to get at least one of their stamp sets soon so I can play with them as well as doing the challenge.
The colors for this challenge are as follows:
I used PTI's stampers select white, enchanted evening, lemon tart and spring rain/stampin' up's bliss blue.
I started with the white cardbase at 4 1/4 square.  I used enchanted evening next and then a layer of spring rain stamped using versamark with BB:hearts stamp set.  I also took the circle stamp from Round & Round and randomly stamped that on top of the text using lemon tart ink.
The main image is from Round & Round in enchanted evening.  I stamped the center in lemon tart but it was light so I stamped over it again with Stampin' Ups bliss blue ink and then inked around it with lemon tart.
The bottom is a layer of lemon tart cardstock that I spiffed up with a white gel pen and then took a copic marker and colored in between the ines.  The ribbon is from my stash. 
The sentiment is from Round & Round as well, stamped in enchanted evening.
I took a button I had in my stashe and tied it on with the equivelant of white, spring rain and enchanted evening DMC floss.  I would have used lemon tart as well but it appears that I am out of that one.  Guess I have another excuse to go craft shopping this weekend.
That about does it for this card.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Lovely card and wonderful ribbon treatment! My oldest son will be graduating from kindergarten too, I'm excited for him but it kind of makes me feel old.

This is pretty!! I love the colors and how you choose to use them.
It has been so long for me I forgot what having a kindergarten grad feels like, now it is the grandkids. Now I am old!!!

I'm so jealous of your ribbon stamping. I've decided I should never be allowed to deface ribbon in this way again as it's disastrous when I attempt it! LOL Great card!

Thanks for playing along!
