Happily ever Crafter challenge #6

Greetings fellow bloggers! I found the MOST challenging challenge!! Thanks to my BBGF Marge...Thanks Marge!!  :) The Challenge is from the blog Happily ever Crafter 
You will have to go check it out for yourself to get your challenge as they are not all the same ;) my challenge was to make a card using...a tree, some ric rac, purple paper and some stitching!!  see...cool & very challenging right! I am not exactly in love with my card but it was a blast trying to figure it out.
This is my silly little card:

I know, I know...from a design stand point I am sure their are a bazillion things wrong with it! The only ric rac I had that even sort of went with purple was this rasb. fiz I cut at Marge's house the other day using her new PTI Die. I really don't like stitching so I used this MS stitching rub-on....at least it matches LOL! Marge also gave me some of this scrap burlap that was out on my table (not yet put away) The Stamp is from stamps by Judith. The little brads have been in my stash for a long time. All paper & other stamps are PTI. That's it for this one! If you get the chance you should check it out...I think it runs till the end of the month.
Thanks for the visit! have a great day!!!

Well, BBGF, I think it's absolutely ADORABLE!!! How creative to stamp on the burlap fabric & put the matching "blooms" on your tree! Also LOVE the darling sentiment tag & safety pin! Clever & oh, so cute!!! I think you rocked the challenging challenge!!!
