Blogger's Challenge 97 - Sketch Challenge

I'm finally getting this posted!! I was suppose to have it posted on Friday, but had to let my camera battery charge overnight, and then the weekend just got away from me! They tend to do that these days!

Anyway....our challenge was to make a project using this sketch:
I turned my sketch a different direction and I even used the same colors - they looked very nice together, I thought, on the sketch diagram! I had a little bit of trouble with this one on knowing when to stop! Ha ha! I kept adding flowers, buttons, rhinestones, and before I know it, it may be a little too much!

I used my Big Shot Texturz plates on the bottom black base (the larger polka dots) and then on the gray vertical piece (the smaller polka dots). That may be a little hard to see in the picture. It actually started out being a small scrapbook page, but then kind of evolved into just a "picture" in itself. I will either tie some of the purple ribbon on the top corners and hang it, or put a little stand on the back to stand it up.
That's it for now! Maybe another post later today! Hope everyone is having a great start to your week!

Really a nice card. I wish I had turned my around cause I like it so much better and using the same colors was a teriffic idea. The XO is such a pop on the card.
