Impressive Color Combination - Oh And A Cameo

This is my second card that I made for a graduation girl. I rummaged through my scraps and found this amazing flower patterned paper. Don't know why but it spoke to me and I knew that I have to use it. I wanted it to really pop, so I had to find the perfect solid color to go by it.
First I went through my stash of ribbons and found this large deep green ribbon - I had found my solid color. Matting paper was sprayed with Color Wash to match my ribbon.
To make my card interesting and elegant, I added a cameo button on top of my bow.  And that was it.
This card was also fitted with a money envelope from the same patterned paper. Head over to my new Freebies section at the top, to get the free envelope printable.
