Crazy 4 Challenges C4C67 and OTWC Inspiration Color Challenge #38

I really like the design for the Crazy 4 Challenge C4C67, and planned to enter a card.  Then I saw the Off the Wall Craftiness Inspiration Color Challenge #38 and decided to combine the two challenges.  To see the rules of each challenge please click on the links in this paragraph. Here is what the challenges look like.

Crazy 4 Challenge

OTWC Inspiration Color Challenge #38


I made several slightly different versions of the same card.  The actual card is either Burgundy or Forest Green.  I used a pink background for 3 of the cards, and left the 4th card with just the base color.  The only difference between the cards is the direction I took with the ribbons along the top of the card. The decorative circles were cut from this years DCWV Christmas Combo Pack, and I used the decorative square punch on the decorative red cardstock from the same pack.  The green square were made with my Postage Stamp Die Cut.
Here is a group photo of three of the cards together.

Now here are pictures of the individual cards ...
