Sketches {by Tamara} card sketch#28

The latest sketch over at Tamara's blog got me out of my box! I struggled to come up with something different to embellish the card front. The edges of the top paper are wavy but the plain paper is stronger in natural light than it looks when putting the card together last night.
I am very pleased with the bow as I made it myself & normally they are just so fiddly!
Papers are BG Lily Kate. Frame the flowers are in was cut first using 2in punch & then a 1in punch to give the circle one end thinner than the other. I had the image of a shallow basket in my mind when I decided on this piece to act as a frame. I could of course cut one end & have a moon shape for something else! Flower is Scrapfairies, Chipboard flower BG, & tiny button?? can't remember where I got them. Two green flowers from Got Flowers. Computer generated greeting. All the edges of the card are inked in Versamagic Wheat, though you probably can't see on this picture. I took it without flash as it went to acid using false light.

love that paper and the embellies you used. I love sketches that get you out of your box and using stuff you normally wouldn't use or get you to use them differently.
