Keesh's Colour Challenge #3

This is the first time I've attempted one of Makeesha's challenges. Once I got going with this card, it came together quite well.
We had to use blue bayou, chocolate chip, ruby red, very vanilla to make something masculine or feminine.
Here's my take on this challenge. For inspiration, I used a sketch which I think I found on Bec's page maps site years ago.

Cardstock - chocolate chip, blue bayou, very vanilla, ginger blossom dsp
Stamps - Seaside, So Many Sayings
Ink - chocolate chip
Accessories - ruby red button, double stitched chocolate chip ribbon, natural hemp twine, photo corner, word window punches, ruby red brad, dimensionals, dazzling diamonds glitter, glue pen.
All supplies by Stampin' Up®
Thanks for looking.

Leigh, what a great card! I love the way the sea images are overlapped. The button on the ribbon is a cool effect too. Did you actually tie the hemp around the ribbon and through the button or is it a two step process? I would love to try it out.
