Sketch Challenge from The Scrapbook Store

Here's another challenge from a local scrapbooking store...  Love that these kind of challenges make me work on projects and keep me active in the hobby.  It's not always I can participate, because I don't really have too much time, but I do everytime I can..

It's a sketch basically designed for a scrapbook page... Lovely, isn't it?



Well, I decided to use for a card instead of a layout page...  You know I like to change rules a bit...  And there's not really rules for a sketch.. Inspiration can lead to such different results from everybody!
I got inspired by the shape in the center which reminded me this stamp from Unity Stamp Co. which forms like a frame and has flowers at left.  I even stamped more of the flowers section and cut to add more at upper left and lower right corners.  The woman and the sentiment are from the same kit.  


I used several distress and dye inks and watercolor pencils to provide color to this card.  Plus, I used a stencil from Latina Crafter and lots of sequins.



I am linking this to the original challenge in facebook (The Scrapbook Store), and also will share for the Friday Friends with Flair at Unity Stamp Co.
