She Loves Me In Lilac And Green

To create this card using House Mouse's She Loves Me rubber stamp, I started with a 5" x 5" green card base and added a piece of purple dot patterned paper backed in white card stock.  I cut a smaller square of green gingham patterned paper, backed it in white card stock and added it to the center.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens and backed it in light purple card stock.  I punched the edge of a strip of white card stock using an eyelet lace border punch and added a piece of sheer purple ribbon to it.  I made a bow out of the same ribbon and added a purple gem to the center of the bow. I also added 3 more purple gems to the green gingham square.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
