A Spring Card for a Few Challenges

I made this card for the PPA#84-Easter/Spring Challenge here, and with the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge#141 here- the colors to use are Real Red, So Saffron, Crumb Cake and Whisper White. I was also inspired by a card I saw, created by Laurie Zoellmer here.
I started with a card stock base of So Saffron and rounded two corners with the Corner Rounder punch. I punched out some So Saffron flowers with the XL 5-Petal Flower punch and the centers in Real Red with the 1/2 inch Circle punch. Since the straw hat from the PPA Challenge drew my eye, I adhered those to a Crumb Cake piece that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice textured impressions embossing folder. Then I matted it with a Real Red piece. I stamped get well wishes from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Real Red on Whisper White and punched it out with the 1 3/8 inch by 5/8 inch Large Oval punch. A So Saffron piece was punched with the 1 3/4 inch by 7/8 inch Large Oval punch. Then a Real Red piece was punched with the XL Scallop Oval punch, popping all the ovals up with Stampin' dimensionals. Finally, some 1/8 inch Real Red taffeta finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Papers: Whisper White, Real Red, So Saffron, Crumb Cake
Inks: Real Red
Accessories: Square Lattice embossing folder, XL 5-Petal Flower punch, 1/2 inch Circle punch, 3/16 inch Small Corner Rounder punch, 1 3/8 inch by 5/8 inch Large Oval punch, 1 3/4 inch by 7/8 inch Large Oval punch, XL Scallop Oval punch, Stampin' dimensionals, 1/8 inch Real Red taffeta ribbon
