Friend to Friend!

Hi everyone,
I am just dropping by to share a quick card which I have made especially for the BGC challenge which is
Celebrate your friend with a peepy-fruity twist...I had made a card earlier but failed to follow one of the rules which was to make a window and wanted to give it a second try...This is very last moment  and here's a look at My card :-                                                            
To make this card,I have first stamped the flowers,the leaves and then colored them using Distress Inks and a dauber...This was the fastest way to color them and the colors have come out really bright....I have tried out something new here...
 Tip : Do you see the 2 ribbon strips on the bottom...Those are created by coloring cardstock's  with Festive Berries Distress ink and cutting them in thin strips and then I have done Faux Stitching over them to give a Grosgrain kind of look...This idea was inspired by Tejal's card which she had shared over Swap Central India..Thank you so much Tejal  :)
