Design Dollies Trifecta!

The Design Dollies Trifecta consists of (1)--a color challenge.  This week it was light green, dark green, kraft, and pink.  Pink?  Oh, I'm all over that!

(2)--An element challenge:  Use two or more ribbons (I have 20 shoeboxes of ribbon--yes, really!)
and/or use ribbon in an unexpected way (Me?  Unexpected?  Please!)

(3)--And a sketch:

How cute is that?!!!
So here's my combination of all three--the Design Dollies Trifecta:

Here's what I did:  My base is Close To My Heart cardstock in Desert Sand.  I sprayed it with Meadow Green Glimmer Mist using the large flourish glimmer screen from the Tattered Angels Blossom pack.  The patterned paper is Cherry-O from CTMH.  I used Martha Stewart punch around the page border punches with CTMH Baby Pink cardstock for the doily-ish pieces and Blush cardstock and ink with Marvy punches for the title and distressing.  The bling is also CTMH Cherry-O Opaques.  Other CTMH cardstock used is Colonial White, Topiary, and Sweet Leaf.  The ribbon for the ice cream cone is from my stash (probably from the dollar bin at Michael's).  What do you think?  Oh, and I'm also entering this in the Fun with Shapes and More Challenge because they too are doing the colors of pink, green, and brown.
