It's a Diva Wednesday Sketch Challenge!

Good morning ladies and gents! Today I've brought to you this week's Diva Coffee Break Designs sketch challenge. As you can probably see I did everything I could to make this sketch my own but still follow the general design. That's called stretching it a bit! Anyway, I saw an amazing card using thie stamp set Greenhouse Gardens with craft ink on dark cardstock r
ecently and knew I wanted to try that. My card is nothing like the one I saw other than the stamps and the fact that I used craft ink. Anyway, In order to not cover up too much of the stamping I decided to use vellum for my layers. Do you ever think to use vellum?? It doesn't happen much for me, but when I do it is always fun and new.

To get the look of the three circle images at the left I used Pewter Jumbo Eyelets with the trusty Crop-a-Dile... but decided to tone them down a bit so not too harsh looking on this soft pretty card by tying a bit of dotted Soft Suede grosgrain ribbon through each.

Well, I sure hope you'll join us this week for this great challenge! I'd love to see your take on this sketch!
