My Grandmother's B-Day Card

Today is my grandmother's birthday. I always seem to make the cutesy cards, but I wanted something a little fancier & more elegant. Not sure if I got there, but I am happy with that way it turned out. I must say that I was determined to use patterned cardstock. I am really afraid of it so this card was a stretch. I don't know why - I see so many cards made with printed paper & cardstock that are so beautiful. Then I see the printed cardstock in the stores & they are gorgeous. But, when it comes down to making a card with them I generally freeze up & have no creativity with them. I think I am afraid of them being too busy.
I used 3 patterned cardstocks from K & Company. The flow is cut out of one of them. I Mod Podged the flower & the photo corners and Pop-Dotted them on the front of the card. I used the Fiskars punch for the photo corners & a Fiskars decorative corner rounder on the layers. I used my Round-It-All for the corners of the card. I edged the card with a dark maroon inkpad from ColorBox. I used a sheer maroon ribbon & layered a teal ribbon over it & attached that to the layers.
Thanks for looking. Questions and comments are always welcomed.

Like this card also, you stated that you used the round it all on the corners. What brand is that punch? I like the way it looks.
