still more bloomin' beautiful

I decided at the last minute that I wanted to change one of the cards for my pastel technique class. And since it is Friday I thought that checking out the limited supply challenge would be a good jumping off point since I needed some inspiration. This is the challenge:
Follow the List: Scraps Edition #1.

The List
1. Make a square card. (Any size)
2. Use only scrap pieces of paper. (The base card doesn't have to be a scrap.)
3. Use ribbon or fiber scraps.
4. Use only ONE other embellishment.
5. Use any colors, stamps, and tools.

Now I don't know what happened but I suspect it is because I am hitting middle age but...

I made this beautiful card (even if I do say so myself) all just from scraps that were laying around but did ya notice what I forgot? It's not SQUARE! Well I used it at my class today and it went over really well but now I need to make another card for the challenge.

What I used:
Bloomin' Beautiful and Elegant Cheer stamp sets
Weathered background stamp
Chocolate Chip and Whisper White card stock
Bali Breeze designer paper
Basic Black, Close to Cocoa classic ink pads
pastels and blender pens
sponge
Chocolate Chip polytwill ribbon
label punch and 1 3/8 circle punch
