Razzleberry Sweet Sunday Sketch

Yes, yes, I'm way late this week getting around to the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge here. But doesn't the saying go, "Better late than never"? So that should be my new motto - seems like I'm running just a little bit behind most of the time. Sooooo... on with the card for this sketch.

Actually I had the card made two days ago, but I didn't have my Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon yet. At first I thought this wouldn't be one of my favorite colors and I'd wait until later to get it. What was I thinking!?! As soon as I don't have something, that's when I really need it! Arrrggh! I had several cards all made except for the ribbon just waiting *impatiently* for the order to come in. My friend Janine was here when the box came this afternoon, and I was so rude! I just had to tear right into it! LOL It's all right though - she wanted to see what I ordered too!
Ahh, now I can share my very new favorite color combo - Rich Razzleberry with Pale Plum and either a dash of Old Olive or Always Artichoke. Glorious! They are just so very elegant together. So this card tries to capture that elegance.
All stamps and materials by Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Always and Bella Toile BG
Cardstock: Pale Plum, Rich Razzleberry, Always Artichoke, and Whisper White
Ink: Rich Razzleberry Classic pad and White Craft pad
Accessories: Mat Pack and Piercing Tool, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches, Scallop Circle Punch, Flower Trio Punch, Fire Round Rhinestone Brad, Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, and Dimensionals.
I changed the sketch just a little bit. (I seem to have trouble following directions exactly. lol) The main image layer of mine is a little smaller than shown. And the circle layer is pushed down a smidge. Otherwise it's pretty much the same. I think it's a terrific sketch to design a card. Simple and clean, but can be quite frou-frou depending on what you use. Just fun! Try it out and see what you can make with it. I'd be happy to hear your comments and see what you've made too!
Happy stamping,
