Card set - ribbon, vellum and oval greetings

Two more cards towards my set of cards!!  Both of these cards started with green card fronts but really went off in their own directions after that!!
For the first I trimmed a beautiful piece of decorative paper and mounted it to a navy blue rectangle of cardstock which I then adhered to my green card front.  I found this stamped greeting in my stash, die cut it into an oval and then distressed its edges.  I used the coordinating layer label to die cut a navy layer which I embossed with polka dots before I mounted the greeting.  I added a length of gold ribbon to the center of my card and mounted the layered greeting over it!!!  
For the next card, I punched the greeting from one I found in my stash, added a blue oval punchie (SU) and then cut a large oval from some textured vellum to add to the back.  I adhered them all together with double sided tape.  I found coordinating colour printed cardstock from which I cut four rectangles.  I corner punched two corners on each of them and then mounted them to my green card front.  I like the look of this combination of rectangles.  I mounted my greeting to the center over the area where the rectangles meet.
