Flourishes - Recipe Challenge

It's my fifth and final week as Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Guest Designer and this week Cindy has challenged us to a "Recipe" for our projects.  The "Recipe" is to use ribbon, a tag and flowers.  
For my bottom border, after embossing the holly I brayered it with green ink so the pattern would stand out.
Here is the flower detail.  I doubled the flower challenge by using a flower image and using paper flowers as an accent.
Here is a closeup of my tag and ribbon in the corner of my image.  I layered a die cut in green over my red polka-dot paper.
And the inside of the card with the year stamped in the corner. I have REALLY enjoyed my month as Guest Designer and the team has been so friendly!

Check out what the Timeless Tuesday Team created:
We'd love for you to play along so check out the details on the Flourishes Blog.
