Amethyst Baby Card

I need to make a baby card for an upcoming baby shower.  I used this great sketch from the Ribbon Carousel Challenge :
It's Technique Week at The Shabby Tea Room, this week the challenge is to use wet or dry embossing.  So I opted to combine both challenges on this card.  I heat embossed the sentiment on the card and also used one of my favorite embossing folders on it.
I highlighted the dry embossing with stickles, for a touch of bling.  I was playing with some 1 1/2 inch silver sheer ribbon, trying to come up with a way to use it.  I ended up folding it in half lengthwise and basting it down the center, then I gathered it.  I was going to use it in place of the velvet ribbon, but I just couldn't not use the cream velvet.  So, I tried is under the rose instead.
