Sketch# 101

This weeks sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge is a lovely sketch .My first thoughts were of all the different flowers I could make and use. I then decided that I wanted to do something really different so that crafters who play along with us can see that the sketch does not have to be taken literally.
Even though I did not use flowers, the elements of the design are there. My main feature is in the bottom right hand side of my card. I have used a sentiment,though mine is slightly higher and off center. There is bling in the upper left corner , though I used 3 instead of two. The main body of the card is a little to the left. I also did this, but choose to use a strip of coordinating color to off set the print paper I used.
As you can see, the overall card does not look like the sketch , but all the elements are there. I do hope that this gives those of you who struggle with some of the sketches some ideas on how to pull a card together that showcases your work, while following a design. 
As usual, I have tried to use up left over paper . This is an older paper pack from Close To My Heart called Tommy. I am sad to think it will soon be all gone. Was for sure, one of my favorites. Here is hoping you all have an awesome week, and don't forget to make good use of all your little bits and pieces !!
