Inspiration time

Hi there well its my turn to share with you some inspiration for the Crafty Ribbons Inspiration blog.
I have used the spottie ribbon which is available HERE and i have used an embosing folder for the back ground .... i needed to make this card for a collegue at work as she had just lost her mam so i think these colours work well as a sympathy card, this is a poppy image but it worked out ok using this colour too, dont you think ?
