Embellish - colour challenge with ribbon

I managed to slip in another card today.  My little one slept for three hours this afternoon and I had a wonderful time creating.
I joined in with the challenge from embellish magazine.  Here is their challenge for this week:

And here's my card:
This card only has the tiniest wee bit of stamping: the sentiment.  I guess I was so caught up in the ribbon theme, the stamping fell to the way-side.
I've used the Stampin'Up colours Choc Chip, Tempting Turquoise and Pretty in Pink, along with White. 
For the heart images, I've used the SU heart punch and randomly punched out three hearts.  Using three different ribbons, I've adhered onto the back of the white cardstock, so the ribbon comes thru to the front of the heart.  The pink ribbon has been ruffled up a little to give some texture.
I've also tied a bow in grosgrain Pretty in Pink.
On the strip of pink along the bottom of card, I've used a Martha Stewart punch - polka-dots.
I've added some buttons and rhinestones for embellishments.
Here's a closer look:
This was a fun challenge - you can check out some fabulous inspiration from the embellish design team.
