Card Patterns Challenge

It's a gloriously sunny day here ... granted it's cold ... but that's ok when the sun shines as it has today ...
My hubby has been painting - we're having a new kitchen - (his idea) .. personally I liked my old one ... but I know I will love the new one ... The thing is that the present kitchen units will be going into the utility room ... so that had to be cleared out and painted ... and in the course of this we discovered that the washing machine had been leaking ... so that led to another job ... and so it goes ... My house looks like a bomb hit it with bits and pieces everywhere and I still have the kitchen itself to clear out ready for the new one ... Now I'm no neat freak, but I do like 'tidy' ... so the only thing I can do right now is stay in my craft room and avert my eyes to the mess. When I was away I asked hubby to please make a start on clearing some cupboards ... the high ones ... which no normal sized female can comfortably reach let alone a 5'4'' (fully stretched) lady like me! I dread to think what lurks in these cupboards ... all the things I buy and cannot, for the life of me, find ... because my 6ft hubby puts them up there ... So anyway he did make a start and I came home to find everything still in the cupboards but he had (proudly) packed away (neatly wrapped in tissue especially bought for the occasion) all my dishes and crockery ... So for the past week we have 3 dinner plates and one bowl ... to share ... for 3 of us ... mmm! 
So in my quest to ignore everything around me ... I made a card for this weeks' challenge at Card Patterns
... this is the sketch ...



.. and this is my card ...


This is the first time I have ever stamped on ribbon and I am quite pleased with the effect ... what do you think? ... Love these prima flowers ... 



... The heart is a glittered heart but it doesn't really show up ...
So that's it for now ...

Till soon ... keep safe
