Ribbon Flower

I love CREATE Challenge. The latest one was to make a ribbon flower. I was pressed for time due to the vacation and working at Dr. John's office. So I came up with a quick idea with the pleated ribbons that I bought a while ago. Here's my version of a ribbon flower on a card. Only one little leaf stamp was need!
hooray
I think this card is perfect for my daughter Stephanie who just found out that she will be going to pursuing her Master's degree in Applied Health Science. She was overjoyed about this late acceptance. So instead of working full-time as a research assistant, she decided that grad school will be most suitable for her at this time of her life. So we all say" HOORAY"(sentiment is from SRM Stickers) when we found out the big news!
